What a big weekend! There are plenty of racing options in the area on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday there’s the gorgeous New River Marathon/Half and 5k in Todd, NC (near Boone), the PB&J 5k in Hendersonville, the Pickin’ in the Park 5k in Asheville (afternoon) and the Flying Eagle 5k in Sylva. On Sunday there are three choices – the Falafel 5k with its nice North Asheville/Grove Park course, the Bearwallow Beast 5k Trail Race with its challenging uphill course and fabulous festival at the top of Bearwallow Mountain and the Pisgah Running Adventure.
So there are no excuses, runners. If you’re not committed yet, pick one. Or maybe two.
