All in-person runners can enjoy a post-run chili lunch, courtesy of Twisted Laurel Weaverville, as well as free hot chocolate from our presenting sponsor, TS Orthodontics.

Proceeds from the event benefit students and staff at North Buncombe Middle School. We appreciate donations as well – look for the donation button on the registration site.

Don’t want to join the movement, but still want to help?

The Chilly Challenge is a true collaboration of school and community. It takes a large group of wonderful volunteers working hard behind the scenes to get our runners from starting line to finish line.  

Do you want to help?  We could use you!

Volunteer and be part of this inspiring and energizing community event!  You can cheer racers along the course, help with racer registration, serve chili, help with the chili-cook off, and much more!

Want to make something to donate to this festive and fun community event? We need cornbread for everyone. Twisted Laurel donates the meat chili but we also like to provide an option for our vegetarian diners.  We will be feeding approximately 300 runners and spectators! 

Please contact the NBMS PTO to chat about how you can become involved – we’d love your help!
