Locally owned and operated Grove Stone & Sand Company is proud to partner with presenting sponsor Carolina Cat to host the 9th annual Rock the Quarry Trail Challenge 5K 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 soon to be called Asheville Museum of Science (AMOS).
We’ve been selected for the 2016 Asheville Track Club Grand Prix !!! Here’s a link to the ATC Grand Prix webpage – ATC Grand Prix 2016
