Glory Hound Events is extremely excited to announce the 2018 race schedule! There are a total of 21 races in 2018, providing a mix of some new races as well as some of our classic events. While we are sad to see a couple of our favorite events go away, we are very excited to welcome back the Cherokee Harvest Half Marathon & 5K. We are also excited to announce two new events for 2018, the Fire Mountain Inferno XC & Enduro Weekend (mountain bike racing) and the Drovers Road & Hickory Nut Gap 8K/15K (trail running).
We applaud everyone for their support of healthy living, competition, camaraderie in the racing world and are looking forward to an awesome year of racing. We’ll see you at the finish line!
