Burke Recovery hosts the Peak to Creek Marathon annually in October.  The race is a Boston Marathon qualifier and winds through beautiful Western North Carolina.  The course goes from Mortimer, NC through the Pisgah National Forest and finishes at Brown Mountain Beach.  The views are phenomenal in Fall in the NC Foothills and runners delight in having  a full sensory experience.  The race is open to 400 runners every year and participants hail from multiple states and countries.

Finish Line Pros does an amazing job coordinating the timing for the race and has proven to be an integral partner in the event.  Burke Recovery is fortunate to have such a dedicated community partner and advocate.  For more information about the race, click HERE.
