Don your ugliest sweater, lace up your running shoes, and join us at the Riveter for the third installment of this festive 5k/10k event! We'll have finisher gifts, prizes for overall and age group winners, costume contests, and more!
We're returning to downtown Asheville and the amazing RAD greenway for 2023! These races start in the heart of downtown Asheville (Pack Square Park) and weave their way down to the French Broad River, where runners will remain for the duration of the race. The greenway is scenic and flat, and we'll have planned entertainment along the way to keep you revved up (think live music, buskers, cheer zones and festive water stations). With a net elevation loss, this course is primed and ready for your next PR!
This race is a point-to-point course, ending at the beer, art, and entertainment mecca, the Wedge at Foundation. Post-race shuttles to both Pack Square Park and the DoubleTree Hotel (Biltmore Village) are free for all race participants.
The Asheville Marathon & Half is USATF certified and will remain a Boston Qualifier.
The 2nd Annual RAD Half Marathon & 10k are fast, incredibly scenic races that start in the heart of Downtown Asheville, North Carolina. Both races whiz downhill to the River Arts District, and wind along the peaceful French Broad River. You’ll be greeted with a complimentary beer, a one-of-a-kind finisher medal, live music, and a free shuttle back to the start line after the race.
