Asheville, NC US 28801
Experience some of the best road running in Asheville with The Flying Squirrel Ten Miler, Asheville’s premier 10 Mile road race. Enjoy the ease and convenience of a road race with the spectacular views and seclusion of a mountain race in this thoughtfully prepared race. The race starts and finishes in just blocks from downtown Asheville and then promptly takes runners on the winding roads of Town Mountain.
Participants will enjoy shaded mountain roads typically used by only locals, such as Sunset Drive and Patton Mountain Road. One thing about The Flying Squirrel Ten-Miler is sure: you’ve got to “earn” those views. The Southern Appalachians are hilly and Asheville is no exception. Did we mention white squirrels? Yes, there are white squirrels that live on the course that sometimes make an appearance. Will you join us on June 4th, 2022? Expect five miles of gradual uphill and five miles of gradual downhill with a bit of flat at the beginning and end. A portion of race proceeds to go towards conserving the endangered Carolina Flying Squirrel.
