Hard Rock Run Update:

For the health and safety of our community and all of our runners, the Hard Rock Run has been postponed until November 21, 2020. For those who have already signed up for the race, all registrations will be rolled over to the new date. If you are unable to make the race, a full refund will be offered. We appreciate your understanding. 

Want a challenge that will really see what you're made of? Take you to a place that the general public hardly gets to experience?

The Hard Rock Run will take you down steep declines into an active, open pit mine and then you will have to attempt to get back out.  The route will be an approximate 6k; runners will start off easy, allowing you to warm-up, before descending 380' into the pit. It's up to you on how you get back out: run, walk, or crawl. Our haul roads are about a 10% grade, nice and easy going down, but hard coming back out.

If running is not your thing, then come out and walk or run/walk the route and enjoy the view! From our location, you can see the Blue Ridge Mountains as a backdrop and take selfies with our giant equipment. After the run, participate in a tour of the quarry led by plant staff. 

New for this year, we have added a 1-Mile Kids Fun Run. Children must be accompanied by an adult (the event is free for adults to participate). Everyone must sign a release of liability waiver before entering the quarry. 

Teachers, students, veterans, first-responders,  and military will receive a 5 dollar discount.

All proceeds will be going to The Shriners Hospitals for Children - Greenville. To give, please click (HERE). All donations are 100% tax deductible through link.
