Locally owned and operated Grove Stone & Sand Company is proud to partner with presenting sponsor Carolina Cat to host the 7th annual Rock the Quarry 5K Trail Challenge and Kids Fun Run in the heart of the Swannanoa Valley. Rock the Quarry 5K Challenge is a foot race with a mission to bring our community together to celebrate good health in our beautiful surroundings while supporting our neighbors. All proceeds from the event benefit Grove Stone’s neighbor, the Black Mountain Home for Children, and long-time partner, the Colburn Earth Science Museum.
Also, we joined the 2014 Asheville Track Club Grand Prix!!!
There will also be a Fun Run this year for kids ages 10 and under. The Fun Run will be a 1/4 mile loop thru the woods and will cost only $5.00/child. The kids will not receive a shirt but will receive a fun gift for participating.
