Springmaid Splash Sponsored by Don Smith Subaru Don Smith Subaru The Course

"I talked to a lot of runners after the finish, and the universal imppressions wewe: "toughest course I've ever raced, and this was a great race."....Whether you run this as a serious race, or just a hard Saturday training run, you will be glad you did...you'll have a blast."

- Twin City Track Club Newsletter, October, 2004

You won't find a more beautiful race course than the Springmaid Splash which is run along (and in) the Toe River.

About The Course...

The course for the run and trail run winds through the scenic Springmaid Mountain Resort, located in the Altapass Community just outside of Spruce Pine and a stone's throw from the Blue Ridge Parkway. We can tell you about it, but pictures say much more than words. To see a larger version of the photo, click on it and a new window will open.
