Mt. A 5K
July 18, 2020
Local time: 4:05 AM
Race will start 7/18/2020 at 10:30am. Packet pick up beginning at 9:00am in the Mt. Ashland ski lodge.
The Mt. A. 5K is America’s friendliest 5K with hugs at the finish. This monumental 5K starts at the Mt. Ashland lodge and winds its way to the weather ball on top of the mountain. It then takes the road back down to the finish in the parking lot.
Proud to be certified by the record holder for the fastest female 100 mile trail race, ultra marathoner Jenn Shelton.
This is not your typical 5K!
The course begins with an 1,100 foot climb. At the top of the climb, you’ll be greeted by a friendly aid station stocked with water and…… CHALLENGE Cards or TIME Cards. You must pick one of these. Challenge cards are challenges you’ll need to perform such as doing a # of push-ups, playing a game of corn hole, singing a Justin Bieber song, or even going back to the start and beginning all over again (yeah, we’re jerks!)! If you choose not to take the challenge (and seriously, who knows a Justin Bieber song let alone wants to sing it!? We have no problem with climbing the mountain again, but seriously, Justin Bieber?!?!?), then you need to take a time card instead. The time cards are completely random and might INCREASE or DECREASE your time. Who knows what your time will be? It’s a risk! ??
Once you pass the finish line, turn in your challenge or time card with your race bib # for a chance to win one of our AWESOME raffle prizes! If you are the lucky runner to select the “return to start” card AND you actually do it, you’ll automatically win a prize. It’s the least we can do. Really. You’ll have earned it.
This is a serious 5K not to be taken seriously. Have fun! It’s the FRIENDLIEST! :)

Yes, we thought about making this the 5k course twice, but we're not that big of jerks! 10K route is the same as the 5K with an added out and back to Grouse Gap along NF 20 road. Sure to be a fast few miles! Water aid station at the turn around.
