get more from BRO

The Winter Splash 8 Mile and 5K Trail Race is this Saturday, February 2nd, on Springmaid Mountain which is in Spruce Pine, North Carolina. The race starts at 1pm, but please arrive early if you still need to register. The entry fee for the 8 miler is $30 and $20 for the 5K.

Like the name suggests, water will be involved but only for those participating in the 8 mile run. The river cross is roughly 20 yards and is located near the finish. The course is a mixed bag with rocks, roots, snow, and hills. Be prepared for it all. No whining allowed!

There will be a bonfire to greet you at the finish line and a warm after party for spectators and participants.
