The Lake Lure Olympiad's 10K Dam Run is an ideal race for athletes looking for a unique one-way 10K. This challenging course begins at Ingles Supermarket on Route 9, heads east on Route 64 and onto Buffalo Shoals Road.
After crossing the iconic Lake Lure Dam, the route winds up and down along the scenic shore road to finish on the Beach at Rumbling Bald Resort before a crowd of cheering spectators.
Runners MUST finish race by 8:15 PM due to darkness. Light traffic at major intersections will be monitored but roads are not closed. Buffalo Shoals Road is especially winding, steep, narrow and often heavily slanted on the shoulders. Residents have been advised of the time and approximate duration of the race, but you should be alert for cars in both directions as you run.
WHEN: August 11, 2017
Packet Pickup will be held at the Ingles Grocery Store (where race begins) on the day of the event from 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM
Note: Only cash or checks can be accepted at packet pick-up.
Keep your maps in a plastic bag to protect them from the rain and know how to use them. GPS units are great, but they are not substitutes for knowing how to use a map and compass.
