Sourwood 5K selected for 2014 ATC Grand Prix

We’re honored to again be selected to be part of the Asheville Track Club Grand Prix. Only 22 races from the dozens of WNC events were chosen. Two other Black Mountain 5K runs the Valentine 5K & Kids Fun Run (February 8th) and Rock the Quarry Trail Run (September 21st) were also chosen.

Andrew Marsh the Sourwood 5K Race Director and owner of Event Mercenaries, a local event management consulting/timing firm said “Having three local races in the Series is quite an honor for Black Mountain. We’re thrilled to be involved with these and other races like the Greenway Challenge (April 5th) and Run for your Art 5K (November 1st). Having great local races and lots of support from areas runners/joggers and sponsors just shows what a strong running community Black Mountain has.”
