April 13, 2012. GRANDFATHER MOUNTAIN, NC – As the May 3 date of the first annual Critter Crawl at Grandfather Mountain draws near, so too does the registration deadline that guarantees a t-shirt. Participants that register for this brand-new, 5K race must complete their registration by April 19 or risk the possibility of not receiving a Critter Crawl t-shirt.
The race begins in MacRae Meadows and ends at the top of Grandfather. All proceeds will directly benefit upcoming renovations to the Grandfather Mountain Eagle Habitats.
Online registration for the “Critter Crawl” began March 1 with 500 available spaces for runners. Many spaces for the event are still available. The cost per participant is $30 and includes: a free day-pass to Grandfather Mountain for the following weekend as well as a “Critter Crawl” t-shirt if the runner is signed up by April 19. Awards will be presented to the top three male and female competitors.
Parking passes, available for $10 per car, must be purchased to park on Grandfather or at MacRae Meadows. Spectators with parking passes will be able to park in designated parking lots on Grandfather Mountain and MacRae Meadows on a first-come, first-serve basis. Shuttles will be available to transport spectators to the top from each parking area.
