A unique new race series with some healthy cash prizes.
Welcome to the Mission Health My Generation Running Series. This unique race series features four Asheville running events focused not on traditional age groups but generations. This revolutionary concept will bring a new level of excitement to road racing in Asheville.
To paraphrase The Who, “We are trying to cause a big sensation. We are just talkin’ ‘bout my generation.”
Runners will be classified and scored in one of five generations:
Centennials or Gen Z (born in the year 1996 or later)
Millenials (born in the years of 1985-1995)
Generation X’ers (born in the years 1965-1984)
Baby Boomers (born in the years 1946-1964)
Traditionalists (born in the years 1945 or earlier)
The Mission Health My Generation Running Series features three of Asheville’s established events and one new event. Following are the participating events:
Asheville Catholic School’s 12th Annual Shamrock 5K/10K – March 17
Festival Frenzy 5K – May 26 (Part of the Mountain Sports Festival)
Highland Brewing Night Flight – July 28
