We’ve moved!

But that’s a good thing!

Get Outside Events is excited to be partnering with the Alleghany Wellness Center (AWC) in Sparta, NC.  Alleghany Wellness Center will be GOMR Village for the GOMR weekend.

This relationship helps in many ways, all of which benefit the runners.

  • Sparta is in the center of Alleghany County and AWC is within a mile from downtown, but it’s still quiet and peaceful and perfect for team camping.
  • AWC has facilities that we’ll be able to use throughout the weekend.
  • Indoor bathrooms and showers will be available all weekend.
  • There’s plenty of room to stretch out and relax between running your relay legs.
  • GOMR Central (inside the facility) is the central location for check in, meals, hanging out, race information, shuttle info, and all activities will be over the weekend.

GOMR Village will be alive with activity for the weekend.  There may even be yoga and massages available. 

Get ready to have a great time at GOMR!!
