Lake Lure Olympiad Sports Festival

In our Area: Lake Lure | Chimney Rock | Asheville | Biltmore | Blue Ridge Parkway |
Dragon Races | Olympiad

August 15-17, 2014
Come to the Lake Lure Olympiad, a sports festival for all ages in Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. More than 25 competitive land and water events are staged around Rutherford County with medals being awarded by age and best times. The triathlon attracts athletes from 10 states.

Considered by athletes as one of the most scenic race weekends on any calendar, the views at the Ninth Annual Lake Lure Olympiad will take your breath away if the climbs don't first.  Anchored by a “3 Races in 3 Days Challenge”, with an open water swim race mixed in, the sports festival dares athletes of all levels with its 10K Dam Run on Friday, Lake Lure Triathlon on Saturday, and Race to the Rock on Sunday. Die-hard athletes can do all three for a special reward. Go crazy, and add on the open water swim event for ultimate bragging rights.

But, the Lake Lure Olympiad isn’t just for grownups. Bring the kids along and let them vie for medals in the Jr. Olympiad. Presented by Rumbling Bald Resort on Lake Lure and Rutherford Regional Health System, participants can enjoy family-friendly activities all weekend long. Get your competition and vacation fix all in one trip. Since 2005, the Olympiad has donated more than $250,000 to area nonprofit organizations. Learn more at or on Facebook at
