Trick or Trail 5k
Presented by Hunter Subaru

Saturday, October 22nd  |   10:00 AM

 

Runners at the 8th Annual Trick or Trail 5k presented by Hunter Subaru get to experience the Halloween-themed race at a new location this year — in the heart of Hendersonville, NC! Due to construction scheduled in the fall at Guion Farms in Dupont, the race is being relocated this year. It will start and finish in the Historic 7th Avenue District on Maple Street at the Train Depot where the vibrant Fall Festival is taking place at the Farmers’ Market! The Trick or Trail is a fall, family favorite event with costumes, decorations, and lots of great candy, snacks, and food!

After the race runners will enjoy the bustling Fall Festival and food, drinks and vendors at the Farmers’ Market. Bring some cash!

 

Runners will enjoy the sites and streets in the revitalized Historic 7th Avenue District, the beauty of fall on the Oklawaha greenway and the twists and turns of the paved trails through the woods at Jackson Park. Making this a fall race you don’t want to miss. It is a race with a nice flow, and little elevation gain and loss, making it fairly fast. Paved surfaces and trails make it ‘easier’ to run on than the typical Dupont trails.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

Welcome to the 4th Annual Light Up the Night 5K at Carrier Park in Asheville, NC on Friday, August 5th!! We are so grateful for the support we have from YOU and Western Carolina Rescue Ministries. Please read this email in its entirety so you are ready for race day!

The LUTN has implemented rolling Wave Starts from 7:30-7:45pm for this event on Friday evening. This allows the start and the race course to not be congested. If you are a runner in contention to win overall or an age group award, we encourage you to start promptly at 7:30pm.   The start line is located at the far outer side of the Mellowdrome, close to the lawn bowling and main parking lots. 

Please note: THE COURSE IS CLOSED AT 8:30 PM. Please self-adjust your start time if you need more time to complete your walk/run so that you can be finished by the time the course closes. 

PARKING

Parking is available at all the parking lots at Carrier Park. The park is open to the public during the event so there will be locals in our community also using the parking lots, greenways, trails and park during the event. 

PARKING MAP

PACKET PICKUP

Packet Pickup will take place at the Carrier Park picnic shelter from 6pm-7:30pm on event day. Please arrive early enough to pick up your race number, shirt, glow swag and take your goody bag back to your car (if need be).

RESTROOMS 

There park restrooms open and available at Carrier Park and there will be a couple portajons in the parking lot near the picnic shelter.  

COURSE DETAILS

Carrier Park is a beautiful park in the heart of Asheville, NC.  The course is flat and fast with very little elevation gain throughout. Participants will get to enjoy the beautiful French Broad Greenway at Carrier Park. Surfaces include wooded trails with hard packed dirt, paved Greenway and dirt paths. 

The park is open to the public during the event. We will ask folks to stay to the right and call out when passing while they are participating in the event. Please be courteous to the locals that are walking, jogging and biking at the park during the event. 

Keep in mind on August 5th, dusk is at 9:00pm. Participants that are finishing at the course closing time of 8:30pm, should be prepared to bring their own flashlight and/or headlamp to participate. Since we are at the park and there are limited street lamps, it will be dark! Neon tees, light up items, glow in the dark accessories, light up vests and other glow swag are all encouraged! BRING IT ON! All in person, registered participants can get glow sticks, bracelets or necklaces at packet pickup!

The course will be marked with PINK Route Arrow Stickers on the paved parts of the Greenway and Yard Signs along the way. We will have Volunteers at some of the key intersections but it is UP TO YOU to know the course. We highly suggest that you check out the course ahead of race day and/or download the race map on your phone/watch/GPS device when you participate on race. Since folks are starting at all different times you will NOT BE able to rely on ‘following’ people during your race.  

There is one water station along the course at the turnaround. 

COURSE MAP

START AND FINISH LINES:

  • The start and finish line are in two separate locations and will be marked with a START Feather Banner and a FINISH Feather Banner. 
  • The start line is close to the billboard beside the back of the Mellowdrome near the lawn bowling area. The finish line is near the picnic shelter. 
  • Before and after you are finished racing DO NOT Cross back over or get near any of the timing mats or your time will get messed up. 

RESULTS

Online results will be available LIVE throughout the race HERE. 

AWARD CEREMONY

Awards will be given out after the event, although there will not be a formal ceremony. Once the results are finalized, we will begin handing out awards at the registration tent at the awards ceremony at approximately 8:45pm. If we have plenty of finishers and results in before this time, we may start the award ceremony earlier. 

If you are an award winner but can’t stay afterwards, you can pick it up at Fleet Feet Asheville starting on Tuesday,  August 9th after 3:00 PM. The awards will be available all week after that.

Why the Tour d’Apple is so important for community

Why the Tour d’Apple is so important for community

 
We at Four Seasons Rotary Club - Hendersonville are grateful to our sponsors, especially Hunter Subaru, for enabling us to offer the 10th annual Tour d’Apple charity cycling event on Labor Day, during the annual NC Apple Festival weekend.  Beginning at 7:00 am on September 5th, more than 500 hundred cyclists will accept the challenge of bicycling one of our four fully-supported, well-marked routes through the apple orchards and mountain roads of Henderson County.  Cyclists and volunteers will find all details and their opportunity to register at www.tourdapple.com.
 
How does the Four Seasons Rotary use the funds from the Tour d’Apple?
Four Seasons Rotary Club - Hendersonville uses Tour d’Apple proceeds principally for local charitable needs like Special Needs Sports, scholarships and emergency funds for students at Blue Ridge Community College, and books for school libraries.  We have also, for example,  purchased playground equipment for Rotary Park on W. Allen Street in Hendersonville.   In addition to TDA proceeds, many cyclists make extra donations 100% of which fund charitable needs: one year back-to-schools shoes, another year winter coats, and then last year Alzheimer’s research and local needs through Interfaith Assistance Ministry.  This year those additional cyclists’ donations will assist with the Christmas bicycles for area children and will also support for the Ecusta Trail.
 
Why is this event important to the club?
Our TDA fundraiser has the dual benefits of fostering camaraderie among our members and in helping to fulfill our Rotary motto of Service Above Self.  TDA also gives volunteers a chance to help with a community event.
 
Why is the work of the Four Seasons Rotary important to our local community?  
Our post-event surveys have revealed that about twenty per cent of our cyclists live more than one hundred miles from Hendersonville.  We expect cyclists from at least ten states.  These out-of-the-area cyclists patronize local businesses, restaurants, and hotels, boosting our economy.  Moreover we help put Henderson County’s “best foot” forward and show how great our area is for living and vacationing.
 
Why is the work of the Four Seasons Rotary important to our local community? 
Like 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide, we can see needs overlooked by others and thus focus on helping to meet local needs that government cannot address efficiently or effectively.  Tour d’Apple proceeds will also help us join with other Rotary clubs in meeting regional and even international charitable needs.
 
What’s the most important thing you’d like the public to know about this event? 
The 10th annual Tour d’Apple charity cycling event will give more than five hundred cyclists of all ages a fun time riding from 25 to 100 miles around the apple orchards and mountains of Henderson County.  They will enjoy four fully-supported rest stops and a post-ride Mexican lunch - a new twist for the TDA.  We also expect that many cyclists will visit the NC Apple Festival on Hendersonville’s main street on Saturday and Sunday before their Labor Day rides.
