BRAND NEW! ASHEVILLE HALF MARATHON AT BILTMORE ESTATE!
We recognize that in early spring, at the start of the racing season, you may not want to engage in a full marathon, or maybe you do but would like to bring a friend that just isn’t up to the whole distance! That’s why we’ve introduced the HALF, Asheville Marathon at Biltmore Estates’ answer to creating an entire destination experience for you, your friends and your family. If you want to experience the typical ‘off-limit’s', primitive west side of the estate, you’ll have to train and sign up for the full marathon! The west side will remain exclusive for our full marathoners only.
Friends and Family can run the Civilized Side together.
For the first 10 miles, full & half marathoners’ run the same course. Enjoying all the European Gardens, the exquisite views of the Biltmore House, and the manicured grounds. When the full marathoners break for the primitive west side, half marathoners will complete their last three miles along the beautiful, rustic banks of the French Broad River.
Participating in this event automatically puts you in the history books as you will be part of an Inaugural Half Marathon event at Biltmore Estate! Every participant will receive either a women’s specific or a men’s custom designed race t-shirt, a goodie bag, and a finisher’s award and blanket. Race entry includes access to the Biltmore grounds. For a complete list of amenities see the ‘Registration’ page.
Half Marathoners get to experience running on the Biltmore Estate, but in a manageable distance for all you busy racers. So, now there’s no excuse not to participate in this elite event experience. Halfers do get finisher awards but are not eligible for prize money, nor do elite programs or pace leader apply to this event.
There are opportunities for volunteering at this event if you want to come and check it out or are racing this weekend and want to take it easy on Thursday. You can go to VolunteerSpot.com to sign up. Of course the volunteers will be taken care of with food and drinks.
