The 5K course will start and finish at the Pardee Cancer Center in Hendersonville, NC. Participants will traverse a picturesque route, meandering along historic streets that wind through the inviting neighborhoods of this community. 

  • Competitors looking to win overall or in their age group should line up at the front of the starting line as overall winner times are based on gun-time and age group participant times are based on chip-time.
  • Have your race number visible on the front!
  • It is up to you to know the course and follow the course markings and signs along the route. It will be clearly marked with colored route arrows on the sidewalks and roads, spray paint, tall directional signs and yard signs with arrows. In addition, volunteers, security personnel and police officers will be on the course. Do not run in the middle of the road.
  • There is one water station on the course that will be utilized twice. The first time will be at Mile 1.25 and the second will be at Mile 2.25.
  • Stroller friendly? No problem! Our event is stroller friendly, but we do ask that if you’re not in it to win it, please start towards the back of the pack for the safety of all the participants. However, if you’re a competitive parent-child duo, and plan to be out front the entire race to win overall, feel free to start up front and show us what you’ve got!
  • Dog friendly? Furry friends are family too! Well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome to participate with their owner.


The first 350 participants to register will receive a glittery, sparkly, She Slays finisher medal!

The awards ceremony will take place near the start/finish area at approximately 9:15am.

Can't stay? You may also pick up your award at Fleet Feet Asheville in Biltmore Park, beginning Tuesday, April 23rd after 3pm, or have it shipped.
