Well over 300 people descended on Grove Stone & Sand on Sept. 17 for the ninth annual Rock the Quarry Trail Challenge 5K and Kids Fun Run.
The event raised money for the Black Mountain Home for Children and the Asheville Museum of Science (formerly Colburn Earth Science Museum).
Last year's Rock the Quarry raised $45,000, and organizers set a goal to raise more than that this year.
The race was won by Henno Havenga, who finished with a time of 18:46.5. Sara Molskness was the top finisher among the women with a time of 24:45.2.
