You have been patiently waiting since March to find out if the Asheville Marathon would return and the answer is officially YES! The race will continue for a 2nd time at the magnificent Biltmore Estate on Sunday, March 16th 2014. We have already placed our order for warmer weather and chances are we will get our wish as this past year’s conditions were not typical for our Western North Carolina region in March.We will make some minor adjustments and enhancements to the course including an updated finish area and graded dirt roads on the west side section of the estate.

The event planning is underway and now is the time to get involved as a sponsor, a charity, a designated water station and very soon a participant! Registration is set to open on Saturday, June 1st and we expect entries to go very fast this year. Our boutique style marathon is limited again to only 1,300 participants. We will have a special early bird, local discounted entry price again this year for only ONE DAY on June 1st!  Once entries are gone, they are gone!

Many more updates to come so stay tuned to our website and Asheville Marathon Facebook page for updates. Contact us if you want to be involved with this year’s race at
