A nice pair of races on the morning of Saturday, April 3, 2010. The races start at 9:00 AM. The courses look quite good with plenty of time running right along the lake. Last year this was an 8k/5k combination but this year they’ve decided to boost the long run to a 10k.
Here is a map of the courses (click on the image for a larger image) …
And here are directions to the races …
Coming from East (from Asheville-25 miles):
From I-40, take exit 27 onto US 19-23.
Drive 3-4 miles.
Do not take exit 104 — it is easy to get lost.
Take exit 103 and drive about 1 mile until you see Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center front entrance gates on the right.
Bear right and follow the main road to the Bethea Welcome Center.
