The Chilly Challenge and the Chili Challenge...what's the difference??
CHILLY CHALLENGE 8K
An 8K race and 1-mile chili chase fun run taking place at North Buncombe Middle School in February, typically a cold, or "chilly" time of year.
Awards are given to top placing runners. There are also several team awards.
A chili-cooking contest held on the same day as the Chilly Challenge. Also: A play on words with the word "chilly". :) We all know that chili is best when it's chilly!
Awards are given for 1st place chili selected by panel of judges & the People's Choice Chili Champ.
First, the race (chilly!) ... then the lunch (chili!).
Our Chilly Challenge has something for everyone ...
