April 14, 2012. BEECH MOUNTAIN — The 2012 Antler Realty A Cool 5 Race Weekend adds some excitement to the race day festivities by announcing that Boone Brewing Company is partnering with Beech Mountain Parks & Recreation as the official Beer Sponsor for the A Cool 5 Race weekend.
Early registration pricing is now open at www.acool5.com for Beech Mountain Parks and Recreation Department’s fifth annual event benefiting Beech Mountain Parks & Recreation. Over the past four years, the race has raised over $75,000 for the Beech Mountain Parks & Recreation Department. This weekend long event isn’t your average benefit race, either. The race weekend gets kick started with a pre-race pasta dinner event Friday, June 9th, featuring live music, guest motivational speaker Lee Zohlman, games and pre-race packet pick-up. On Saturday, June 10th, the fun continues with a 5 mile race and the pet friendly (complete with doggy water stops) 1.5 mile fun run/walk. The event will also consist of an exciting race village, jaguar race timing technology, live music, a bounce house and games for the kids, post-race cookout, awards ceremony, and Saturday evening pub crawl. To make things even better in 2012 a FREE recovery yoga session “on the lawn” has been added to the schedule for 10AM Sunday followed by a FREE group recovery hike through the Emerald Outback at 11AM.
To further spice things up, Beech Mountain Parks & Recreation Department has announced a partnership with Boone Brewing Company, maker of Blowing Rock Ale and seasonal brews, as the official Beer Sponsor for the Antler Realty A Cool 5 Race Weekend. “We are proud to partner with a company, such as Boone Brewing, that places a specific emphasis on staying true to their roots by staying active within the local community and participating in initiatives to better the high country. We are also very excited to have the opportunity to help promote a wonderful craft brewer, local to the area. Boone Brewing Co.’s participation is greatly appreciated and will enhance the race day atmosphere providing our participants with an unrivaled event experience in the high country”, said Daniel Scagnelli, Director for the A Cool 5 Race Weekend. All event participants over the age of 21 will receive two complementary beers upon completing either the 5 mile race or the 1.5 mile fun run/walk.
