The Lake Lure Olympiad weekend ends with the ultimate racing challenge: the 5K run or 25 mile bike to the top of Chimney Rock. Both races end with a 7-9%
grade incline that finishes at the base of the 315 foot tall Chimney Rock.
What’s even more enticing is that this is the ONLY TIME you can run or cycle up to Chimney Rock all year. If the climb doesn’t take your breath away, the
incredible 75-mile panoramic view at the top surely will.

Keep your maps in a plastic bag to protect them from the rain and know how to use them. GPS units are great, but they are not substitutes for knowing how to use a map and compass.
