The 12th annual sports festival is three days of competitive sports racing in Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. The festivities kick off on Friday evening at Rumbling Bald Resort with Opening Ceremonies, a 5K Dam run and the Couch to Cart Path Run. Competitors then wake up Saturday for the Lake Lure Triathlon consisting of a 750 meter swim, 22.3K bike and a 5K run along a mapped out course at the resort. Families can share in the competitive events with plenty of activities including the Junior Olympiad. Finishing the weekend is the ultimate racing challenge: the 5K run or 25 mile bike to the summit of Chimney Rock.
