MAY 10, 2015 – THIS RACE HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO UNFORESEEN LOGISTICAL ISSUES AS OF YESTERDAY.
This is the second running of the Farm 2 Table 5k and the venue is changing to one that hasn’t hosted a race in about seven years as I recall. Eliada Children’s Home had a 5k trail race around Halloween for a few years (2007/2008) but then discontinued it. If you have not had the opportunity to visit and run there you’ll enjoy it. The race is part of the Asheville Track Club Grand Prix Series.
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
The Asheville Track Club presents the Farm 2 Table 5K – Farmers Market & Family Festival. This event aims to educate the community about of the benefits of combining healthy foods, sourced through local farmers, with fitness and fun. Located on Eliada Children’s Home campus in West Asheville, the event will be an evening for runners as well as families. Come out, learn about local farmers markets, listen to live music, play at the festival and participate in a fitness event. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Asheville Track Club programs as well as FEAST (Fresh, Easy, Affordable, Sustainable, and Tasty) of Asheville whose mission it is to promote healthy eating choices and make them accessible to people of all income levels through hands on cooking classes that encourage and empower participants by teaching skills needed to make fresh, wholesome and tasty food.
This 5k starts at 6:30 PM. The Fun Run and Firefly Dash will start about 7:30 PM. There is a festival and farmer’s market so you can make a nice summer evening of it.
