Race Description

The Ascent Run will take place at the Blue Ridge Mountain Club concurrent with the Second Annual Ascent Bicycle Hill Climb. The Run will start at Watson Gap Pavilion and go to the top, for 3.7 miles with 1,300 feet of ascending. The run is the second stop in the High Country Summit Series along with the world famous Bear 5 Mile Run up Grandfather Mountain and The Knob in downtown Boone.

Both courses use a brand new, buttery smooth road with incredible scenery around every bend. Unlike other hill climbs, we have the luxury of a two lane road that we can close, meaning your friends and family can watch from anywhere on the course, and you can ride, walk, or drive down from the top. Registration is available at for only $25 until August 1 with NO PROCESSING FEES!, going to $30 until August 8 and $35 day-of.
