About This Activity

10-miler is open: select Register Now button to proceed!

The 5k and 10-miler races will both begin at the Watauga County Sheriffs Department. The runners and walkers will head out of the Hodges Gap Road Parking Lot and up Oak Grove Road. They will then take a right onto 421 South and continue down the road until they reach the light at the Mellow Mushroom in downtown Boone, near the Courthouse. At the light, they will all take a right onto Water Street; at the end of the road take a left onto Rivers Street. Follow Rivers Street and enjoy the beautiful Appalachian State University Campus on both sides. As Rivers Street comes to an end, the participants will take a right onto 321 South. Stay straight on the highway and after three lights, the 5k runners and walkers will see their final destination at the Boone Police Department on the right. If the runners are on a team and/or running the 10 miler, they will run straight down 321 South. When they reach Sunset Road in Blowing Rock, the runners will turn right and continue up to Main Street. After taking a right onto Main Street, and nearing the end of the race, the runners will turn left onto Park Avenue, where they will joyously cross the finish line at the Blowing Rock Police Department. The celebration and snacks will be awaiting the finishers arrival at the Memorial Park in the heart of downtown Blowing Rock, and near the finish line.
