FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
This certified 8K course winds through scenic Hendersonville and Laurel Park, starting and ending at the Pardee Cancer Center, on the hospital’s main campus in Hendersonville. “We are using this certified 8K course for the 12th consecutive year and the runners always give a great response to it,” said Tina Kinsey, race director of this year’s event. “This race has become part of the Apple Festival tradition for many and we have runners from all over the South who come each year to participate. The three events make this something that all ages and all levels of running ability can participate in.” Registration for the 8K includes a t-shirt for the first 250 registered participants.
The Chick-Fil-A Mini Moo Run is a fun run/walk for the young or young at heart and will start a few minutes after the 8K race begins. Runners will receive a special finishing prize.
Designed to promote health, wellness, and fitness among area companies and their employees, the Chamber Challenge 5K is a perfect way to have fun while working towards a goal together. Prizes will be awarded for the fastest team, most teams from a business, best team costumes and the coveted “Team Spirit” trophy.
Parking for the events is available in the large parking lot at the Pardee Cancer Center and also in the Pardee UNC Health Care parking garage.INFO/REGISTER
I ran the 8k in 2016, the first year they had the 5k and it was a fairly small turnout.
I want to run this race. The 5k is a new addition. I wonder if it will make the race really crowded. I know that the Asheville Chamber Challenge 5k is huge.
