It’s sad to think that this will be the final running of the Biltmore Estate races (15k and 5k). After 11 years these scenic, tranquil races will fall victim to progress and expansion on the estate grounds. I feel fortunate that I was able to register for the 15k before the races had reached the registration limit.

Both races start and finish near the Winery and the Bistro. The 5k starts at 7:15 AM and the 15k starts at 7:20 AM. The 5k is a simple out and back on the road that runs along the French Broad River and past the “big rock” and turns around near the lagoon. The 15k meanders all over the estate, past Dearpark, the Reception and Ticket Center. The course continues through some parking lots, right past the front door of the house, a pass through the gardens and a culmination featuring a long home stretch along the French Broad River, past the big rock and on to the finish line.
