Update: Results now available for the Civitan Sun Run 10k …
This race is a little mysterious because although it’s listed at the Asheville Track Club’s website as part of the Grand Prix, it’s difficult to find any other information about it. It’s listed at Active.com (click here to go directly to the event page), but that only lists the date, time and location. Nothing about the course, awards, packet pick up — all the stuff that we race junkies like to know a little about ahead of time. But — come on — who doesn’t love some mystery? I signed up (the 10k is in the Grand Prix series but there is also a 5k). I included a satellite visual of Jackson Park in Hendersonville from Google Maps and my guess is this is going to be a trail run. I only base that on a little reading about Jackson Park at the Henderson County Visitors Information Center which lists the following activities at Jackson Park:
Bicycle Trails & BMX Track, Reservations or fees, , Nature Trails, Athletic Field, Basketball Courts, Playground, Tennis Courts, Fishing, Hiking, Picnic Areas
So it’s not a stretch to believe this is a trail race. I’ll be there.
