The Inaugural Jump off Rock Half Marathon & 10k presented by Hunter Subaru, takes place in Hendersonville, NC on Saturday, May 8, 2021.
Both races are point-to-point, with separate start and finish areas. The half marathon starts at the highest peak in the Town of Laurel Park at the historic landmark – Jump off Rock in Laurel Park. The 13.1 course is beautiful and scenic, with breathtaking views and will be one of the fastest downhill half marathons in the south with a net elevation loss.
The 10k will start at the base of Laurel Park in Hendersonville and will be mostly flat with a few rollers. Runners will join in on the half marathon course and get to explore the best of Hendersonville city streets and run around the iconic Osceola Lake and then finish in downtown Hendersonville.
Both races will end in the heart of the city on historic Main Street, Hendersonville. Runners will finish on closed city streets and can enjoy recharging after the race with yummy food and drinks and an afternoon of relaxation and exploration of downtown.
