Lake Lure Olympiad

112 Mountains Blvd., Lake Lure, NC 28746

Heralded as one of “America’s Best Lakes” by USA TODAY, Lake Lure, North Carolina is home to the Lake Lure Olympiad Sports Festival. Year after year, athletes rave about the area’s scenic beauty, challenging courses, delicious finish line food, and countless welcoming volunteers that all make the Olympiad experience truly special and unique. The Lake Lure Olympiad offers fun and competition for the whole family.   Make the most of every event day by taking our "3 Races in 3 Days Challenge." Kick it off with the 10K Dam Run on Friday night, wake up right with the Lake Lure Triathlon on Saturday morning, and then shut down your vigorous weekend on top of the world – Sunday’s Race to the Rock; 25-mile bike or 5K run that ends with a 7% grade incline straight up to victory on the summit of Chimney Rock. Or, go the extra mile(s) and add in the open water swim race.   Bring the kids and let them vie for medals in the Junior Olympiad. Since 2005, this nonprofit organization has given back more than $250,000 to community charities. Hosted by Rumbling Bald Resort on Lake Lure and Chimney Rock State Park, with support from Rutherford Regional Health System, the races AND the views will take your breath away.   Learn more at www.LakeLureOlympiad.com
