About This Activity

The Beech Mountain ClimbMax 5K and 10K, presented by, is set to challenge runners with two demanding courses on Saturday, June 22.

The marquis event, the 10K, includes more than 800 total feet of elevation gain. The first two miles will be mostly downhill, winding along a scenic stretch of Beech Mountain Parkway toward the ski village. From that point, it’s a long, steady uphill climb – punctuated by several switchbacks and long-range vistas – to a height of 5,443 feet, just below the mountain’s summit.

Course-side lodging specials will be available, along with post-race activities.

The entry fee for adults is $30 through May 20; and $35 from May 21 until race day. Race day registration is $40. Children 13 and under may register at any time for $20.

Entry fees include a t-shirt, goodie bags, and post-race activities.
