10k Route: Start at the Lelia Patterson Center, 10k runners take RIGHT onto Howard Gap Rd. Runners will continue on Howard Gap past Hutch Mountain Rd and past Patty’s Chapel Rd and go all the way to Jackson Rd.

(10k runners watch for U turn signs on Hutch Mountain Road.)

We strongly encourage 10k participants to be able to run/jog the full distance of this race due to this run course being on busier roads in Fletcher, NC. The 5k race will veer off of Howard Gap road rather quickly after the start of the race, so walking the 5k event is allowed.
