The Black Bear Half Marathon is back for its third year and we are so excited! Both the half marathon and 8k both offer a scenic, mostly flat course along the Oklawaha Greenway. The Half Marathon has less than 400 feet of elevation gain, and both races wind along the river, so you won’t want to miss it! Participants will receive a free treat and a beer (21+) after the race to replenish some much-needed calories. We’ll also have plenty of vendors at the race hub, live music, and a recovery zone with massages and PT!
The Apple Festival Race are back for 2022! This race consists of a 5k, 8k, and Kids Fun Run in historic downtown Hendersonville. This race coincides with the Hendersonville Apple Festival, so make sure to walk over to main street after the race. The Apple Festival Races are a Hendersonville staple, and we can’t wait to see you there!
All participants in the 8k and Team 5k will receive a free shirt with their registration, but you must register before July 31st at midnight to guarantee your preferred size! All Mini Moo participants will receive a different shirt for free with their registrations.
The Asheville Triathlon course is a super event for every level of triathlete, from novice to elites. Novice + Beginner tri-athletes love this race!
This race is fast and is a huge hit among local elites. The time trial swim start in a 50m pool allows swimmers to spread out. The bike leg is flat the first couple miles, so get down in your aero bars and push it. The middle section has some steep hills just get outta the saddle and roll over em! There are several downhill sections that are smokin’ fast! Many elites have PR’d during the 5k run, bring your racing flats!
