The Cub, Presented by Mast General Store, is the first race in the High Country Triple Crown series and arguably one of the prettiest runs in North Carolina. The course follows a beautiful seven mile course through the countryside of Valle Crucis. Participants registered by May 7 are guaranteed a shirt and a reduced registration fee of $35 (participants may register for all three races for $100). Registration after May 7 until race day is $45 for The Cub. Awards for the Cub include first, second and third places in ten age categories in addition to overall awards in both the adult and grandmaster (age 50+) categories. Runners who complete all three races in the Triple Crown are eligible for $1500 in cash awards as well as other special awards.
The other races in the series include: High Country Half Marathon (August 26) and The Knob -- Two Miles of Pure Hill (September 30).
All proceeds from the High Country Triple Crown race series are donated to the scholarship fund of Girls on the Run of the High Country. The High Country Triple Crown is a program of the ASU Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Institute for Health and Human Services.
