SPECTATOR INFO

To encourage social distancing and to avoid groups gathering at the start and finish line, we will have designated cheer and spectator zones for the Biltmore Park Turkey Trot. We ask that EVERYONE in the CHEER zone please stay socially distanced and they must wear a face-covering! Maps for each cheer zone are posted on the Event Guide and emailed to all participants prior to the event.

COVID-19: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • Event is capped at TBA total participants, with limited participant wave starts.
  • These wave starts will be determined by the guidance from NC on event gatherings.
  • All participants will receive a Commemorative Finisher Medal this year!
  • Online registration will close at TBA - make sure to sign up before then!
  • Designated Social-Distanced Cheer Stations along the bike course! Come out and cheer on your friend/family member at one of these designated cheer spots along the course! (more info coming soon! 
  • No walk-up registration on race day
  • Coordinated social distancing at the start line
  • All staff/volunteers will be required to wear a face-covering during the event.
  • Participants are required to wear a face-covering until the event starts and then put it back on after they are finished running/walking in the event.
  • Unfortunately, with social distancing measures in place, we will not have a finish line ‘experience’ of music, hanging out and waiting on the results or an awards ceremony. After you are finished with your race, we ask that you grab your food box and drink and head out of the venue area.
  • Awards will be available to be picked up locally or mailed after the event.
  • Event Swag can either be picked up locally the day before the event (at packet pickup), or mailed to you for a nominal shipping fee. You can select to have your swag mailed to you during registration up until TBA. After that, you’re only option will be to attend the PPU session the day before the race.
  • All virtual event registration includes swag that will be mailed to you for free (shirt, medal, goodies, etc).
  • The online results will be posted the day after the event.
  • Other changes will be added and communicated to participants prior to the event.
  • As we all know the pandemic changes things quickly! We ask that you be flexible and patient as we may have to adjust things for this event up until the event takes place. Please know we are doing our absolute best and want this event to happen as much as you do! In the event that the U.S. or NC government, Buncombe County or City of Asheville declares a new stay-at-home order or places new restrictions on gatherings and we are not able to have the in-person event, all ‘in-person’ event registrations will automatically be converted to the Virtual event.

TEMPERATURE SCREENINGS FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS, VOLUNTEERS AND STAFF WILL BE CONDUCTED.
