LPC Retro Triathlon & Kid's Splash 'N Dash @ Lelia Patterson | Fletcher | North Carolina | United States

The 5th annual Hunter Subaru LPC Throwback Triathlon is the perfect event in which to challenge one’s self, regardless of competition experience or athletic prowess. It features a 200-yard outdoor pool swim, a 17.5 mile bike on quiet country roads, and a rolling 5k run with an on-track finale in which to summon your mighty kick to the tape! The Kid’s Splash N’ Dash, which begins at 10:30, means even budding athletes can participate in the throwback thrills without adults towering overhead!

Trick or Trail 5-Mile & 1-Mile Spooky Sprint @ Dupont State Forest
Oct 21 @ 6:30 pm
Trick or Trail 5-Mile & 1-Mile Spooky Sprint @ Dupont State Forest | Hendersonville | North Carolina | United States

The only race of its kind in the region, participants will strap on headlamps and light up the night as they duke it out in the dusk. The twists and turns of DuPont’s famous trail system will dare them to push forward, not knowing what bogies and specters might lurk around each corner! The One Mile Spooky Sprint will be Halloween themed, and a great chance for kids and kids-at-heart to break in their costumes a day early, without stressing about time limits, as this event is untimed!
