parade of tartansSecond Full Weekend In July 
52th Annual Grandfather Mountain Highland Games
Over one hundred Scottish clans and societies sponsor this celebration of Scottish dance, music and athletics, known for its colorful parades and kilted pageantry. Phone 828-733-1333 or email to highland@gmhg.org for information and a brochure.


"America's Toughest" marathon attracts runners from all over the country and many parts of the world. The race starts in Boone and ends on the track at MacRae Meadows. The course features a net elevation gain of 1,000 ft. However, runners who successfully complete the race end up climbing well over 3,000 ft. due to the rolling terrain of the course. To make it even more difficult, the last portion of the race-- a distance of 13 miles--is virtually uphill. Phone 828-265-3479 or email lamarreca@boone.net for information.
