Race Day :: June 6, 2015

 

Asheville is truly an American treasure and a running destination with great shopping and world-class dining. Runners and walkers will want to sample the many unique breweries, bars and clubs that the city has to offer! Asheville is one of America's most picturesque cities with beautiful homes, mountains and attractions bordering the Blue Ridge Parkway! 

The 13.1 Asheville Half Marathon and 10K begins and ends in Pack Square and runs through the streets of Asheville and along the French Broad River. Entertainment will be provided by the Music Initiative throughout the entire race course; a local artist at every mile marker! 

This is the best time to visit Asheville with great weather, great views and lots of color. Asheville has an extensive art district with art of all types. Runners and walkers will LOVE the challenge of running the hills in Asheville.  

If you're a runner, this is the one to run!

The goal is to promote health, fitness and a healthy lifestyle in Asheville.  The Asheville Half Marathon serves as a model in the community and offers a world-class competition in Western North Carolina.
