I’m planning to run this course Saturday, August 24, 2019, starting at about 7:30 AM. It’s an easy pace, averaging about 10 minutes. Anyone interested is welcome to join me. Once you get up to Sunset, much of it is shady. You’re back in the sun from the Rose Garden, down Kimberly and over to Weaver Park.
It’s reminiscent of the ‘old’ Shamrock 10k Race in Asheville, with an uphill pull to Sunset Drive, followed by a rolling cruise up Sunset Drive to the point at which Sunset Drive intersects with Patton Mountain Road and North Griffing. At that junction, the course goes downhill to the Rose Garden in North Asheville and down Kimberley Avenue to Evelyn and finally back to Weaver Park.
