This is the third time I’ve enjoyed this race at Pisgah High School. It’s a relatively flat course by Western North Carolina standards, featuring an out and back rural road section followed by a long stretch on a paved greenway path that wanders through a park along a small river. The final section is an in-town stretch on sidewalks that returns to Pisgah High School for the finish.
This race didn’t happen in 2015 but I looked back at my 2014 finishing time and I managed to shave five seconds off the same course. That’s always a good thing. I was second out of three in my age group and 11th place overall.
