This is a classic North Asheville race with a gradual uphill pull during the first half that pays back in the second half. And don’t forget your free falafel sandwich after the race – it’s delicious. The race is part of the 2012 Asheville Track Club Grand Prix series. With a late start on a Sunday morning (10 AM) you can double-dip this weekend, taking in a race on Saturday if you like.
