“Rock the Quarry” Training Run!
Posted on July 17th, 2015
18 awesome runners came out last week for Rock the Quarry 5K Trail Challenge’s training run. With RTQ right around the corner, on September 19ththis year, enthusiasm was high. The practice run started at 5:45pm at Grove Stone & Sand Co. Due to construction in the quarry’s pit, the group ran around the quarry, 4 miles on the gravel haul road to the top of the overlook (see the view pictured below!). Thank you to the Black Mountain Running Co. Posse and other high-spirited runners who joined in on the fun! Stay tuned for future training run dates between now and race day!
