Montreat College will be hosting our annual 5K race to raise money for Coach Britten Olinger. On February 27, 2017 around 7:00pm, Britten Olinger, was in a terrible car accident. He was hit by an erratic driver in Black Mountain, NC. He severed his spinal cord at the C7/T1 vertebrae. He had fractures in his pelvis/lower back, he had a broken left arm, he had traumatic injury to his lungs, and he had a small brain bleed.. Coach O is Montreat's Track and Field coach and has touched so many lives and as you can tell running was his passion. We as a community are doing our best to raise enough money for everything that Coach Britten and his family will need for medical and other expenses as needed. Britten has a loving and wonderful family,2 beautiful kids. Help support a great cause and a great family.

The Black Mountain campus is a softly rolling, wooded estate located in the historic town of Black Mountain, N.C., three miles from the college’s main campus for traditional undergraduate students. This 72-acre property was purchased in 2001, and an additional 17 acres were purchased in 2004. Montreat has flourished with the addition of these properties. Originally a conference center, the campus is home to our Manor House, our primary athletic complex, and the college’s Team and Leadership Center.
