TIMING

All participants will have a timing chip and a bib. If you do not have your bib visible during the event, you will be pulled from the race and DQ’d and will not get a finishing time. Bibs covered or not visible at the finish line will not be timed. Please pay close attention to the placement of your bib from the graph below. Cyclists (GG and Du) will also have a bike plate to attach to the front of the bike. Here is how each race will display their bib/plate and where your timing chip is located:

All athletes are required to wear a helmet and shoes on the bike. All athletes must wear their assigned race number (if it’s not displayed, the Duathlon and Gravel Grinder athletes cannot cross the bridge over into the west side):

  • 10k Off Road Run – bib number for front of shirt
  • Gravel Grinder – small bike handlebar number (20, 40 and 60 mile bibs will be different colors) and corresponding bib number for back of jersey
  • Duathlon – timing tag will be on the bib on the front of this shirt for individual participants and an ankle band (for relay participants). Duathlon participants will also have a corresponding small bike handlebar number.

Gravel Grinders must count laps and know when to return to the east side towards finish. 20 milers count 2 laps and turn across bridge at approx 21.8 miles, 40 milers count 5 laps and turn across bridge at approx 39.5 miles, and 60 milers count 8 laps and turn across bridge at approx 57.2 miles. 

Duathlon cyclists will do 2 laps on the west side, 13.25 miles total from transition to finish. 

EQUIPMENT NEEDS

If you are participating in the Duathlon or Gravel Grinder we suggest you use a mountain bike or if you are an experienced cyclocross bike rider that is comfortable on gravel roads that have holes/dips and some ‘larger’ rocks in various sections then a cyclocross bike will also work for the event. ROAD BIKES ARE HIGHLY DISCOURAGED.  All athletes are required to wear a helmet and shoes on the bike.

Please be prepared to have your own equipment to change a flat tire. We will have mechanical support roving throughout the west side of the estate but you are responsible to have your own items to change a flat and be prepared to do this without volunteer assistance.

Race Morning

Race Morning

RACE MORNING

When arriving at Biltmore you will follow traffic to Antler Hill Village and be parked by Biltmore Estate Parking Hosts. Leave yourself PLENTY of time to get onto the estate and to the parking lots. It takes a minimum of 20 minutes when coming onto the estate to get to Antler Hill Village. When the first races begin at 7:45am, traffic will be held on the estate until at least 8:05am. SO DON’T BE LATE!

Please note: If you are participating in the duathlon, your bike will need to go to the transition area and be set up prior to the race. So leave yourself plenty of time to unload your bike and race items at your car, walk your items to transition and get set-up prior to the race start. There is NO DROP OFF or UNLOAD AREA! Please orient yourself with transition when you arrive at the event and how you will go in/out the transition area on Run 1, Bike IN/Bike Out and Run 2. If you go out the transition area the wrong way during the race, your transition split time will be inaccurate and may not show up for you in the results. See Hub Map for details on transition and location of the zone in Antler Hill Village.

If they come in before/after hours then they would have to purchase a spectator ticket because it is considered a ‘special event’ at Biltmore. Regular business hours on race day begin at 9am.

What can my family and friends do while I run? There are great shops to explore in Antler Hill Village with food, beverage, and gift items all with a great atmosphere. They can also stand in the Spectator Viewing Areas. SPECTATORS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE BRIDGE.
