Biltmore Kiwanis 15k 5k Classic Race

This year is the 16th Annual running of the Biltmore/Kiwanis 15k/5k races! With the races only one month away, registration is already full for the 5k* race and nearly maxed out for the 15k race! This classic race is limited to the first 1,100 entrants, once they are gone, they are gone! All participants will receive a specially designed commemorative, RECOVER Brand, dri-fit race t-shirt and an unforgettable race experience at the Biltmore Estate. Additional information is available online at the race website. You can still register online at imATHLETE.com until the race is full. A waitlist will go into effect when the race fills up.

*The 5k race is full, however, you can still register for the event by signing up for the 15k race and then when the 15k race fills up you can go online to your imathlete profile and switch yourself to the 5k race. This will only work while the 15k race still has spots so if you want in, this is your last chance!*

When runners participate in the race, they are not only competing for medals, but also are helping to fund the Kiwanis Children’s Charities which supports several local youth programs.

Race Details: Runners mark your calendars for Sunday, May 19th, 2013 at 7:15am, for the Biltmore/Kiwanis 15K/5K Classic Races. Both races are the same as in previous years and are run entirely on the scenic grounds of Biltmore estate. The 15K begins at the Winery, climbs to the Deerpark Restaurant then descends and climbs along the main road to Biltmore House where runners will loop in front of the massive main entrance doors of the house. Runners next enter the Walled Garden, pass by the Azalea Garden and lagoon along the French Broad River, and then finish by returning to the Winery. The first half of the course has two challenging hills, while the second half is down hill to flat terrain. The 5K course will be a flat, out and back course starting at the Winery and paralleling the French Broad River.
