by Frank D. Kecseti – Brevard, NC Nine short months ago, the closest I got to running was a quick “run” to the store. I was over 360 pounds and about to embark on the greatest transformation of my life — a half marathon was nowhere in my mind. May 1st of 2019, I...
We are only one week away from Frostbite 2020! The 28th Annual Frostbite Races presented by Couch Mountain Community takes place on Sunday, February 16th in Fletcher starting at 1:45pm at the Lelia Patterson Center. The 5K and 10K race courses provide views of Hutch Mountain and are on hilly to challenging terrain with some steep inclines sure to keep your blood pumping. The moderately rolling 1 mile course is a fun course that is fun for the whole family and all ages.
This year’s Frostbite is presented by Couch Mountain Community, a unique community located on a 200-acre upland plateau comprised of only 34 homesites. It is a sustainable community that puts a focus on wellness for its residents and our environment by providing beautiful community gardens, miles of wooded trails, scenic mountain views, bees, chickens, and more.
The Couch Mountain Community staff will be out on race day supporting runners and handing out race swag, and ALL of them will be participating in the events. They are big proponents of staying active and supporting the local community.
About Couch Mountain Community:
Perched on an upland plateau, approximately ten miles south of Asheville, North Carolina and six miles north of Hendersonville, North Carolina is a unique upland mountain community known as Couch Mountain. This elevated two-hundred-acre tract of land offers stunning views of the Fletcher Valley to the north and expansive long range views into South Carolina to the south. The average slope of the developed portion of Couch Mountain is only 30%, which makes for some incredibly easy, buildable homesites.
Couch Mountain has been planned and designed as a low density, low impact community which simultaneously protects and celebrates its many unique natural features. Great care was taken to preserve 50% of Couch Mountain in perpetuity. An intricate network of thoughtfully designed and maintained trails meander throughout this extensive nature preserve. When combined with the community gardens and numerous public gathering areas, this planned community provides owners endless opportunity to focus on their mental and physical wellbeing. Couch Mountain is a place to escape, a place to rejuvenate and a place to proudly call home.
Visit the Couch Mountain website to learn more about their vision and make sure you high-five them at Frostbite on Sunday, February 16th!
