The 2015 Stick Boy Mayview Madness 5K and the one-mile fun run for kids takes place on Saturday, Sept. 19.

The 2015 Stick Boy Mayview Madness 5K returns to the High Country for its 16th year this Saturday, Sept. 19.

With the Blue Ridge Mountain vistas and cooling air temperatures, it will make for a great morning event in Blowing Rock. Along with the 5K run, there will also be a 1-mile fun run for kids sponsored by Blue Ridge Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine. Run the race and enjoy post-race celebrations after crossing the finish line at Bistro Roca.

Runners who have pre-registered can pick up a race packet this Thursday the 17th or Friday the 18th at the Stick Boy Bakery located at 345 Hardin Street in Boone. The bakery is open from 7:00am-6:30pm Monday-Friday and Saturday from 7:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Race packets and race day registration will also be available the morning of the 19th at 7:00am at the American Legion located at 333 Wallingford Street in Blowing Rock. The Fun Run begins at 8:00 a.m. and the 5K begins at 8:30 a.m.

The event benefits Blue Ridge Conservancy’s work with willing landowners and local communities to permanently protect land and water resources with agricultural, ecological, cultural, recreational and scenic value in northwest North Carolina.

Those who would like to volunteer can contact Nikki at [email protected]. Volunteers will help register runners, set up the signs along the course and assisting with logistics at the finish line. Volunteers get a race shirt, Stick Boy treats, Bald Guy Coffee, and can run in the race if interested.
