Lake Lure Olympiad

The Lake Lure Olympiad Sports Event is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers, bringing people together in the spirit of friendly competition for the benefit of charitable giving.  Over the past 13 years, the Lake Lure Olympiad has given back over $315,000 to area charities and service organizations.

Test your mettle with the Slam the Dam 10K, Race to the Rock (5K run or 25K bike), Triathlon...or all three!  There's also a Pickleball Tournament and Golf Tournament to keep everyone enjoying exercise in the outdoors.
