This is one of my favorite races. The first time I ran the 10k was back in 2007 when it started off Central near I 240. went up to Sunset and returned by way of the North Asheville Rose Garden. The course is still a favorite of mine and to this day I use the route for hill training.
Asheville Catholic School presents the 14th Annual Shamrock Run on Saturday, March 14. There are two races: a 5K and a 10K, both of which start and finish at ACS and run through the beautiful neighborhoods of North Asheville. A fun run will precede the start of the 5K and 10K. The 10K will start at 9:00 AM and the 5K at 9:15 AM. The Fun Run will begin at 8:30 AM.
All events benefit the O’Brien and William Edward Gibbs Memorial Scholarship Fund. The event will be three days before St. Patrick’s Day this year giving everyone a perfect way to celebrate this fun holiday. There will be great food, beer, and a DJ before and after the races.
