The 2013 Summer Splash Trail Race
10K Adventure Trail Run & 5K Trail Race
Springmaid Mountain, Spruce Pine, NC
Saturday, August 17, 2013
A 10K (6.2 miles) trail run or a 5K (3.1 miles) trail race on a very challenging course at the Springmaid Mountain retreat near Spruce Pine, NC.
ALL NEW FOR 2013: Kids' Run (noncompetitive) just before the awards. EVERYONE WILL GET WET!!!!!!
This year's race is dedicated to Chris Sandoval, an avid supporter of the Springmaid Splash since he moved to the southeast and began working for
Subaru as a district sales manager in 2005. Early this year, Chris experienced a bad fall, which resulted in a traumatic brain injury. He received immediate medical attention and was in the ICU for nearly three weeks. He spent the next two months at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, one
of the top rehabilitation hospitals in the nation specializing in spinal cord and brain injury. Chris has made amazing strides, but the road to his recovery has just begun. Chris is a fighter and we know he will come out on top with the support of his wife, Kathryn, four-year old son, Cole, his brother, Pat, who has moved from Texas to help with his care, and the rest of their family and friends. The Sandoval family is gratefully accepting donations to help with costs associated with Chris's care not covered by insurance, such as needed home modifications for wheelchair accessibility.
