ASHEVILLE’S ANNUAL 5K CELEBRATING WORKPLACE WELLNESS
Get ready for the Challenge! A 5K run or walk through historic Montford may or may not be a walk in the park, but it is a great way to raise awareness and challenge your co-workers and employees to a healthier lifestyle. Register your teams today! The Chamber Challenge is capped at 1,600 participants, we expect to sell out prior to event day.
Signing up teams can be confusing, so we're here to help!
First off, teams have to be comprised of exactly four members. If you don't have all four members together when you initially sign up, that's alright! But, if you don't have four members when the race starts, you won't appear in the results.
After entering in your personal info, you'll have to select whether or not you want to "Join or Create a Group/Team".
Race packets (shirts, race numbers/chips and important information) can be picked up on Thursday, May 14th, between 12 noon and 3:00 pm in the Chamber Boardroom (36 Montford Ave., second floor).
Complimentary race shirts are included with online registration until April 24th at midnight. After that date, shirts will be available for purchase for $10 (in limited sizes/quantities).
Day of registration will be available from 2:00pm - 3:30pm outside the Asheville Chamber building. Registration and participant changes cannot be processed after this time to ensure a prompt start to the race.

Clinical dietitians from presenting sponsor Pardee UNC Health Care offer these nutrition tips to jeep you fueled and healthy…
Ideally, fuel up 2 hours before exercise by hydrating with water and eating healthy carbs (whole-grains, low-fat dairy, fruits and vegetables). Avoid saturated fats and even a lot of protein because they’re harder to digest.
If you are short on time and need energy, eat simple carbs like a piece of fruit because they digest faster and will provide your body with energy sooner.
After a workout, make sure to eat lean protein rich foods like legumes, chicken, and fish, in order to repair muscles used during exercise. Consumption of carbs post workout can help stimulate protein production.
Glucose loading isn’t recommended for athletes who train daily for endurance sports. Complex carbs like whole-grains, legumes, and starchy vegetables, promote glycogen (multiple glucose molecules) storage.
Drink water to be adequately hydrated: drink 2 cups of water 1-2 hours before the event and 1-2 cups of fluids 15 minutes before the event. In addition, eating a lot of protein before endurance exercise can cause dehydration, so try to avoid.
Electrolytes should be replaced after endurance exercise. Sports drinks are fine but remember they have added sugar and may cause an upset stomach if you drink too much. Fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of potassium.
