Band Aid 5k + 8k
I speak from experience when I say that this is a terrific pair of races. They’re well -organized and take place on a combination of the Asheville High School and AB Tech campuses. Runners finish on the Asheville High School track. I ran the 8k in 2014 and plan to run it again in 2015.
