The Greenway Challenge 5K & 10K is a running race that raises funds for and awareness of greenways and trails in Black Mountain NC. The event is hosted by the Black Mountain Greenways and Trails Committee.
Since this event was created more than 13 years ago, the number of greenways in Black Mountain has grown and the 5K and 10K routes have changed to include more and more of our greenway system making dreams come true for the event founders.
And we have so many plans for more greenways and better connectivity so we will keep fundraising through this race and the route will keep evolving to promote our great outdoor assets.
The Committee plans to hold the event again in April 2022 using the traditional format (fingers crossed that we don’t have to go virtual again).
We realize that organizing a great running race is a large task best managed by an energetic group of people. So we are building a Greenway Challenge Planning Committee and we want to talk to YOU!
Some of the tasks tackled by the Greenway Challenge Planning Committee will include:
- Contacting our amazing sponsors (we have a strong list of organizations who love to support greenways),
- recruiting and managing volunteers,
- selecting and sourcing awards and schwag,
- promoting the event,
- collaborating with our venue partner, and
- developing the race routes
Planning for the event will begin in August 2021 so we’ll begin meeting soon. If you are interested in serving on the Greenway Challenge Planning Committee, contact Julie White at firstname.lastname@example.org
