Many spaces for the event are still available.  The cost per participant is $30 and includes: a free day-pass to Grandfather Mountain for the following weekend as well as a “Critter Crawl” t-shirt if the runner is signed up by April 19.  Awards will be presented to the top three male and female competitors.

Parking passes, available for $10 per car, must be purchased to park on Grandfather or at MacRae Meadows.  Spectators with parking passes will be able to park in designated parking lots on Grandfather Mountain and MacRae Meadows on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Shuttles will be available to transport spectators to the top from each parking area.

  • I picked up my 6 year old son from school  and asked him if he could guess where I was gonna take him to spend the weekend. With eyes big and wide he asked, Grandfather Mt? I have never seen him get so happy. Or should I say, pumped up to the max. He thanked me over and over again, while packing for the night in the wild. As with most things in life can be, this was a gift that did not fade away or break like most  presents after minutes of play.  As we got closer  to the top he expressed his deepest thanks, I saw my boy grow up this weekend. I pushed him and he pushed me and together we made it all the way from 105 to the Swinging Bridge.  "Get Out More.  Make memories, not regrets."
