An Asheville Classic for 36 years (that’s right – people were running this race before some of you were even born) and part of the Asheville Track Club Grand Prix Series. Here are some facts about the race from the race organizers:
New start time 10:00 AM. Hoping that Lexington won’t be so crowded on a Saturday morning as it was last year on Saturday afternoon.
Same start/finish location as last year (77 Central Ave).
Pizza, beer, and the band (The Glampas).
New course. The start is the same but just makes a short loop through the cemetery (just by Tom’s grave and then out of there) and then does a portion on the Greenway. No crazy hills through the cemetery this year.
Kelly Allen and Dolly McLean are putting it on so what do you expect?
