The Kick It Events Team
In 2019, Kick It Event Management, owned by Leslie and Tim Grotenhuis, took over some aspects of the Smoky Mountain Relay and are thrilled to be working with Jim Brendle and Sourwood running for the next few years to ensure a smooth transition into owning this event.
Kick It Events is an Asheville, NC based event management company which owns classic area events such at the Thomas Wolfe 8k, Asheville Independence Day 5k, Chasing Trail 8k and the Oktoberfest Half Marathon. We also race direct the Asheville Hot Chocolate Races, Catawba White Zombie 5k and Art Dash 5k.
Rhianna Scott joined our team in 2018 and has helped us grow.
