A classic Western North Carolina evening race with plenty of history, a loyal following and a certified 8K course.
Glory Hound Events is proud to produce the 32nd running of the Maggie Valley Moonlight Race on Saturday, August 24, 2013 at 8:30 pm. The race returned in 2011 after a 3 year absence to rave reviews and we anticipate doubling the amount of runners in 2013.
Hosted by the Town of Maggie Valley and the Maggie Valley Chamber of Commerce, the 8K road race will start and finish at the fairgrounds in the heart of Maggie Valley.
The Sunset Fun Run will return in 2013 and precede the adult race at 7:45 pm. The safe, fun event is held inside the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds is designed for those not wanting to run the 8K.
The rectangular course takes runners 1.2 miles up the valley to Ghost Town, then 2.4 miles in the opposite direction, before returning them 1.2 miles to the finish line back at the fairgrounds.
