Jerdon Mountain Challenge

20 Jul 2013

A 30 mile course of backcountry racing at its finest. This race will run the same course as the ever popular Off Road Assault on Mt Mitchell but will end before the famed climb up Curtis Creek Road to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Racers tackle 4,000' of climbing over 30 miles as you hit highlights like Old Highway 70, Kitsuma, Star Gap and Jarrett Creek. Celebrate with a huge after-party complete with pasta/salad feast, New Belgium Beer and Shannon Ridge Wine on the picturesque Mountain Gateway Museum grounds. For more information, call Blue Ridge Adventures at 828-606-5107 or visit www.blueridgeadventures.net.
