Sourwood 5K & Cheshire Pump & Run
2016 marks the 28th running of the Sourwood 5K, a premiere road run/walk held August 13th in conjunction with the Sourwood Festival. Also returning this year is the Cheshire Pump & Run where participants earn deductions off their 5K times for doing bench presses pre-race. Both events are held at the Cheshire Fitness Club in Black Mountain.
The well marked/supervised 5K course features rolling hills, shade, three aid stations and lots of fun.
Race organizers are hosting a practice run each Tuesday night in July and August until the Tuesday prior to the race. The free practices start at 5:30 p.m. following the exact course of the Sourwood 5K. Athletes of any pace or experience are welcome to join this free 5K group run starting at the Cheshire Fitness Club. No registration is required but reservations are suggested – we don’t want to leave without you.
