“Thank you for trying to keep races going while trying to follow all the guidelines of Covid 19. My wife Beverly, ran the Light up the night 5k and really enjoyed it. Everything was well done, even the puddles. I have been marathon training since January and every race has been canceled. I am so excited to run the Black Bear Half. Having race waves of 25 people will help make it feel race like vs show up and run. Just wanted to thank you for great work during difficult times. We have also run your Turkey Trot each year and you guys always put on a professional atmosphere.” ~ Paul



“The event management is world class, and staff and volunteers always have a smile on their faces.”



“Your events are hands down some of the best I’ve participated in and I’m closing in on 150 races over the last 9 years. Your swag is phenomenal. The opportunity to experience Biltmore Estate is one of a kind. You have always done right by your participants even when mother nature has conspired against all of us.”


“This is by far the most memorable race that takes you to the front door of the mansion, past the garden and through the vineyard.”
