This fine half marathon is part of the big Asheville Running Experience hootenanny weekend. Much of the course is the same as the old Asheville Citizen-Times half marathon.
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
We have tried to stay as true as possible to the old Citizen-Times Half Marathon course. The race will begin on Coxe Avenue in the heart of the South Slope and proceed north through downtown into North Asheville and through the Grove Park neighborhood including the famous climb of Cherokee. After this section the course is exactly the same including the sections on Kimberly Avenue, around the Country Club of Asheville, the Beaver Lake Trail, Lookout Mountain and UNCA before heading to Broadway. At this point we will join the Reedy Creek Greenway before taking the final stretch up and over Patton Avenue on Lexington Avenue for the final sprint to the finish on Coxe.
The half marathon starts at 7:30 AM.
