Race 13.1 Asheville, NC
The inaugural Race 13.1 Asheville, NC will take place on November 14, 2015 in one of the most quintessential and beautiful mountain towns in western North Carolina. The race will start and end in the heart of downtown Asheville at the historic Pack Square Park, and feature some of the best sites Asheville has to offer. After exiting the historic downtown area, runners will make their way through some beautiful residential neighborhoods before hopping on the scenic Reed Creek Greenway. Runners will then pass by the beautiful Asheville Botanical Gardens and onto the campus of UNC-Asheville before turning around by the historic Grove Park Inn.
This thriving mountain city features a funky and eclectic downtown, 30-plus art galleries downtown alone, a burgeoning culinary scene, a thriving live music scene and the awe-inspiring scenery of the Appalachian Mountains. This is the perfect race destination for anyone looking for a weekend filled with culture, great dining and beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains! If running a 5k, 10k or half marathon isn’t enough, a scenic hike – or at least a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway – should definitely be added to your plans!
