    Event Description:
    Navigation The grand finale of the 16th Annual Lake Lure Olympiad – a 3-day family sports festival showcases the beautiful scenery of Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. The Race to the Rock is a challenging 5k run or 25-mile bike race that climbs 900 feet in the last 3 miles (a 7-9% grade) to finish at the base of Chimney Rock. The rewarding 75-mile views from the finish line overlooking Lake Lure are enough to take your breath away… or what’s left of it! This is the ONLY TIME you can ever run or bike up the Park road. Register for this event at lakelureolympiad.com. Spectators get in free if in the Park before 7:30am.
