out runningA 5-mile trail run will be held on the single-track trails of Nantahala Outdoor Center Saturday, Oct. 27.

The Flint Ridge Fall 5-Miler will start at the Flint Ridge trailhead at the top of NOC’s campus in the Nantahala Gorge, traversing approximately 4.75 trail miles and finishing riverside by the Nantahala after a quick downhill. This trail offers great scenic images of the fall foliage in the Nantahala Gorge, with awesome views of the river. The run is part of a larger event at NOC called NOCtoberfest.

The event is sponsored by Salomon and will help support MedicForce, an independent non-profit that utilizes first aid and medical professionals to provide free first aid training and care to remote communities throughout the world.

Late registration will begin at 8 a.m. and the race will start at 9 a.m. www.noc.com.
