1PEDDLE or PADDLE
Pick your path to the obstacle course staring line and timed portion of the event– paddle down a 1.5 mile section of the Nolichucky River or peddle your way up and down hills both on and off road. Whether pedaling or paddling, you are sure to have an adventure. Pro-tip: Bring your own bike or kayak and save on your registration fee!
Once you cross this starting line, you will immediately enter the obstacle challenge course where your strength and agility will be tested at one of the many obstacles including a sand crawl under barbed wire, traverse wall and inverted wall, balance beam, monkey bars, tire drag and much more.
Upon completion of the obstacle course, Triple Threat participants will then begin the
third segment of the event – the 5K Race. Racers will run to Temple Hill Road to Jackson
Love Highway, where they will veer left onto Carolina Avenue. They will race down
Carolina Avenue to Academy Street, then to Nolichucky Avenue, where they will cross
the finish line.
After you conquer your fears, have a shower and a beer! The finish line for the race will
be located just steps from the Erwin Great Outdoors Festival. Participants and their
families can then enjoy the festival and all of its activities - live music from various
bands, outdoor-themed vendors, live demonstrations, food trucks, craft beer tent, hikerfriendly activities, kid's zone with petting zoo, and much more! A complimentary shower
trailer will be available for Triple Threat participants and each participant, over the age of
21, will receive a free beer token, compliments of Union Street Taproom.
