Earth Fare, the Healthy Supermarket, celebrates the birth of its new foundation with the Friends of Earth Fare 5K. The event will be held at the RiverLink Sculpture and Performance Plaza on Riverside Drive in the River Arts District of Asheville.
The Friends of Earth Fare 5K will offer a prize purse of $3,000 in CASH to not only the top 3 overall and masters but also the top 3 in each age group.
Prior to the 5K start at 8 am, there will be a kids Fun Run at 7:30 am that will take kids from the Sculpture Park to Jean Webb Park and back.
This race will use a new course in the Asheville area that begins and ends at the RiverLink Sculpture and Performance Plaza and includes much of Depot Street and the River Arts District. The course is flat except for two hills at mile point 1.25 and 1.75.
Due to virtually no parking at the race site, Earth Fare will be operating shuttles from their West Asheville Store at Westgate. We strongly urge all participants and spectators to take advantage of these shuttles. Prior to the race, race participants will have priority for shuttle seats.
Earth Fare will be providing food, drink and entertainment after the race in the Sculpture Park.
