About This Activity

This will not be the fastest 5K you run this year; almost as certainly it will be the most scenic…
The Foliage 5k will take you through the trails of AMS and Celo. This stunning route, timed to coincide with the beginning of fall foliage season, will take you over creeks and through the woods. One highlight of the course will be a circuit around a meadow of blooming goldenrod with an expansive view of the Black Mts. The modest registration fees go towards supporting Arthur Morgan School. 

Event details and schedule

The course is an accurately measured 5K and we will time you but it is not USATF cert and we will not utilize chip timing (you will not PR on this course anyway). No T-shirts (if you are a runner, you’ve got plenty of those). This is just an old fashioned county cross-country club race. Will have some creative and fun awards and will do team scoring if multiple teams participate. This run is made possible by the Mount Mitchell Runner's Club.

Parking at the start/finish, 1.1 mile down Hannah Branch Rd from the Seven Mile Ridge Bridge off of NC 80S.
