Saturday, July 11 @ 8:00P
The event is being produced in partnership with the City of Asheville and the Asheville Parks & Greenways Foundation with proceeds going to the development of greenways in our community.
The rolling course will take you from the Highland Brewery to the Beverly Hills neighborhood of East Asheville and around the Asheville Municipal Golf Course. As you leave Beverly Hills there will be a downhill section before crossing Swannanoa River Road and hooking up with Azalea Road before taking Gashes Creek Road to the its end where you will meet up with a trail leading back to the brewery.
There are hills so pace yourself going up them and make up the time going down.
Each runner will receive a special, one-time race shirt to mark the occasion. We will have other goodies for you at Packet Pick Up but quantities will be limited so register early to guarantee yours.
Highland has room for 400 cars at the brewery. Once these are taken, cars will be directed to the Bi-Lo Shopping Center. Shuttles will run from the Shopping Center on Hwy. 74 to the brewery to accommodate over-flow parking.
