The Mountain Air Community near Burnsville, NC and Glory Hound Events are excited to announce the inaugural Ascent at Mountain Air 5K taking place Saturday, October 14.  This 5K road race will climb 1,800 feet, from the private community’s gates to the air strip on the top.  At 4,600 feet elevation, this will be the most spectacular finish line in Western North Carolina.

For those wanting less of a challenge, we will have a fun run/walk on the half-mile airstrip.  Participants may go to the very end and see the amazing views or turnaround at any point.



Mountain Air is located off of Highway 19E in Burnsville just 45 minutes from Asheville and one hour from Johnson City.
