A one-miler in downtown Asheville just before the holiday parade. Sounds like a blast.
This exciting 1-mile, chip-timed race is held just prior to the start of the annual Asheville Holiday Parade. The streets are lined with tens of thousands of cheering spectators waiting for the parade to start (and for you to come flying by)! The race will start precisely at 10:35 (with the fun-runners lining up behind the racers) to avoid any possible conflict with the parade. Costumes are welcomed and encouraged! We will conduct the awards ceremony immediately following the last finisher and should be finished in time for you and your family to enjoy the parade and see Santa Claus welcome in the holiday season.
