The Ridgecrest Conference Center in Black Mountain is proud to present the fifth Downhill at Dusk 5K. Runners will run a course from Ridgecrest to Black Mountain that drops over 200 feet in elevation. This is one of most unique and fastest races of the year. Earlier that day, the Downhill at Dawn Half Marathon will take runners from Ridgecrest to Old Fort on a combination of paved and gravel roads.
This downhill 5K will start in front of the ARC at the back of the Ridgecrest Conference Center and head west down old US 70 to Black Mountain, finishing at Black Mountain First Baptist Church.
The course is USA Track and Field certified (USATF Certificate Number NC19009BDS).
The race will utilize chip timing. Your chips are on your race bib so don’t crinkle them up.
The Ridgecrest Conference Center felt the right thing to do would be to refund everyone the full amount of the entry fee they paid for the 2020 race(s). If you previously canceled through IMAthlete, you will still be receiving a refund. The discount code you received with your original cancellation will no longer be valid.
The refund will be processed through IMAthlete and could take 4-6 weeks to receive. The refund will appear on your credit card statements at I AM Athlete, LLC or IMAthlete.com. Unfortunately, we will not be able to refund service fees charged by IMAthlete. Any questions concerning the refund can be addressed with one of their representatives at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 877-462-7979, extension 5 or 2, during the hours of 8:00 AM-5:00 PM PST, Monday through Friday.
All of the volunteers are from the Ridgecrest Conference Center. Please thank them and the police and firemen as you make your way through the course.
