EVENT SITE RULES
Runners are strongly encouraged to finish the race no later than 8:15 PM due to darkness. Light traffic at major intersections will be monitored but roads are not closed. Buffalo Shoals Road is a winding, steep, narrow road that is sometimes slanted on the shoulders. Residents have been advised of the time and approximate duration of the race, but you should be on alert for cars in both directions as you run. Remember there are no pets or strollers allowed.
FREE transportation from the portico of Legends on the Lake Restaurant at Rumbling Bald Resort to Ingles Supermarket. The schedule of shuttle service by van or bus is at 6:00pm. Please be aware that seating space on the shuttles are limited and are on a first come, first serve basis. The trip to Ingles can take anywhere from 25 to 30 minutes.
For those whose cars have been left at Ingles, vans will make one trip from Legends on the Lake Restaurant to return to Ingles following the recognition ceremony between 9:00-9:30 pm. The best alternative is to come with a friend or family member who can drop you off at Ingles before the race and take your car to the Resort where the race will finish on the beach.

Policies & Refunds
There are no refunds for this race. This event occurs rain or shine. In the case of lightning, we will delay the start.
*** Year after year the Olympiad provides a venue for athletes to come and test their abilities. We put a lot of effort into making this a special event for all participants. In addition, the Olympiad supports many area charities and service organizations. And like most races, we have a “No Refund” policy.
Because of the coronavirus last year we waived that policy, granting all registrants a deferral to 2021 believing it was the right thing to do. We would like to see you here to participate this year and join in the fun and excitement.
Effective as of June 18th, athletes who do not want to race this year and were deferred from 2020 can receive a one-time special deferral to 2022. If that doesn’t work for you, we suggest that you make a tax-free donation to the Olympiad charities. If you elect this latter alternative, we can supply you with an IRS compliant document of this donation.
Thank you for your interest in the Lake Lure Olympiad!
The Olympiad Board
