Geyser Growl Half Marathon, Presented by Hillman Beer

October 21 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


Geyser Growl Half Marathon

Welcome back to the third edition of the Geyser Growl Half Marathon, Presented by Hillman Beer.  This fun and scenic race during peak leaf season will take runners from the bucolic Town of Black Mountain to the revitalized Town of Old Fort, passing the iconic Andrews Geyser along the way.  We will finish at Hillman Beer Old Fort with hot soup and cold beer.  The first two years of this race have received fantastic reviews and we look forward to an even larger field this year. For those looking for a replacement for the now-defunct Downhill at Dawn, this is the perfect choice. Please join us.

Race Date: Saturday, October 21, 2023 – 8:00 AM


Online registration will open on Wednesday, November 9 at 9:00 AM EST and will close on Thursday, October 19 at 9:00 PM.

Race Capacity: 

The race is limited to 500 participants
