This race is held in conjunction with the North Carolina Rhododendron Festival in Bakersville, NC. The race has been part of the Asheville Track Club’s Grand Prix Series in the past but it is not in 2012. It’s a nice 10k – I ran it in 2008. There’s not too much information readily available about it, but what I have been able to find is at the Festival Website. Download a Rhododendron 10k Entry Form.
The race starts at Gouge School at 7:30 AM. Here’s a map of the location:
