I don’t believe there’s been a race at the Cliffs at Walnut Cove before so this is new territory for runners. The race is part of the 2014 Asheville Track Club Grand Prix series.

Sergeant Hewitt was shot and killed as he and fellow officers attempted to service involuntary commitment papers on an individual in the Arden area.
