Description

Due to safety reasons from COVID-19, the High Country Cool Down 5K & 10K Run has been cancelled. See you next year!

Escape the summer heat and run with us in the cool North Carolina Mountains!

The 2nd Annual High Country Cool Down will be held on Saturday, August 8, 2020 in Boone, NC. The races are designed for the casual jogger (or walker) or the competitive runner. There will also be a FREE 1 Mile Fun Run for kids 9 and younger.

The 10K will start at 9:00AM and the 5K will start at 9:15AM. Both races will start and end at the soccer fields. The course map uses much of the Greenway Trail and the Watauga High School property.

Race registration includes a race t-shirt (guaranteed if registered by July 18) as well as post-race bananas and waters.

Other activities such as small-sided pickup soccer games for kids will be offered throughout the morning and we will have concessions and coffee for sale.
