What started out as a foggy morning pre-dawn on October 24, 2015 turned out to be a perfect day in the NC mountains! The start line at Jonas Ridge saw its largest crowd to date and the fog lifted within a few hours, revealing excited runners, proud supporters, and celebrations at the Brown Mountain Beach Resort finish line.

Since 2006, Peak to Creek has been one of the top qualifying events for the Boston Marathon. In 2013, Burke Recovery became both the official hosts and the beneficiary for this popular event. 

This year, for the race's 10th Anniversary, Burke Recovery would like to thank Peak to Creek's tireless organizers David and Rhonda Lee from Finish Line Pros!

A huge amount of planning and coordination was carried out by Lisa Moore, Burke Recovery board member, who had her hand in every detail. Burke Recovery board members and staff, as well as Flynn Recovery Community residents and graduates, made the setup and aid stations possible.

Overall race winner was Jeffrey Schneider (2:48:42) from Broadview Heights, OH. Second Place Male Open winner was Brett Herron (2:49:48) from Kingsport, TN. Third Place Male Open winner was E.J. Hrynowski (2:51:46) from Arlington, MA.

The Female Open First Place winner was Colleen Casey (3:06:17) from Grapevine, TX. Second Place Female Open winner was Rita Dorry (3:16:41) from Raleigh, NC. Third Place Female Open winner was Deborah Dawson (3:18:05) from Fort Mill, SC.

Male Masters winner was Thomas Watterson (2:58:47) from Sylva, NC. Female Masters winner was Lillian Gilmer (3:21:02) from Nashville, TN.

Those who placed overall and in all age categories are listed on the Finish Line Pros website under 2015 event results.

We're grateful for the runners who came from afar and those who live close by. This has been Burke Recovery's largest fundraiser for the last three years, and we're hoping to work with the Peak to Creek Marathon for years to come! Burke Recovery was organized as  The Burke Council on Alcoholism and Chemical Dependency in 1966 to assist in the alleviation of human suffering borne by those afflicted with alcoholism and chemical dependency and the suffering of family and friends. We are committed to the alleviation of the suffering and to the improvement of the lives of all persons affected by substance abuse and/or dependency.
