Every year, in early November, runners from around western North Carolina gather downtown at the Asheville Brewing Company on Coxe Avenue, shed their alter-egos and become Super Heroes for a few hours. Some are recognizable favorites like Spiderman and Captain America while some are ingenious inventions stimulated by Ashevillian creativity.
