Returning for the 16th annual year, the scenic mountain town of Lake Lure hosts the Lake Lure Olympiad on August 12-14, 2021.  Each year hundreds of athletes come to compete at one of Western North Carolina's Premier Destination Sports Festivals, situated in the Blue Ridge Foothills.

The Lake Lure Olympiad boasts multiple race events, challenging courses, and entertaining outdoor activities for family and friends at diverse scenic locations. It is also a non-profit organization bringing people together in the spirit of friendly competition for the benefit of charitable giving. The Olympiad has given back that more than $315,000 towards area charities and service organizations.

Over the past 15 years, athletes of all ages and abilities have participated and continue to rave about the area's scenic beauty, delicious finish line food, and countless welcoming volunteers which all make the Olympiad experience truly special and unique. Bring your kids and let them experience the same thrill of competition that mom and dad love, plus they earn medals too at the Junior Olympiad.

Turn your competition into a destination race weekend and enjoy the amazing backdrop of the Hickory Nut Gorge, serving as both a place to compete and a fun summer getaway spot with views that will take your breath away.
