Race Information

It's fall, the leaves are changing colors and it's getting a little cooler out; so grab your running shoes, sweaters, hoodies, and camera, and join us to virtually Run the Blue Ridge Parkway.


We've set up a Virtual Challenge to run (or bike) the entire thing.  It's just under 500 miles and you'll have just under 2 months, so in an effort to keep it a doable task you'll get 10 miles of credit for every mile you run, and 5 miles for every mile you ride.


We're running South to North...No other reason than that's where our office is.  So we'll be lacing up (or saddling up) in Cherokee, NC (at the Southern entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park) and making our way North along the entire parkway and arriving in Rockfish Gap, VA.


We'll be using Racejoy in addition to entering your time, so you have two ways you can track and look at your progress throughout the months and keep up with your progress...You can even take advantage of the google street view for the entire course.


Swag?  You bet...We've got a few things that will be available for purchase:

  • An awesome leather key chain that we'll be lasering the logo on

  • Shirt

  • Stainless Steel Tumbler

  • Probably a few more things

Event Schedule

Registration

The event is just $8, so there's not much that's going to come free, other than a great way to keep yourself motivated.  But we do have a downloadable custom bib, and we definitely want you to upload as many pictures as you can.


We're also working on a long list of optional swag...Keep checking back, and we'll get you all set up.  Right now we've got:

  • An awesome leather key chain that we'll be lasering the logo on

  • Shirt

  • Stainless Steel Tumbler

Save money and race with friends! Take a look at our Teams and Fundraising info.
