Asheville Marathon at Biltmore Estate – Train with Danny Dreyer, co-founder of ChiRunning
For the second year, ChiRunning® will be the official training program for the Asheville Marathon at Biltmore Estate. The race will be on Sunday, March 16th and will be run completely on the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. Come join us for this wonderful marathon training and event.
Here are some excerpts from Danny Dreyer on the ChiRunning Blog on Mon Sep 16th, 2013 – See the original post
In 2012-2013, Chi Running trained a group of 75 people for the Inaugural Asheville Marathon At Biltmore. Our “team” met most Sundays for our long runs at Bent Creek in South Asheville, the perfect training ground to practice for this hilly event.
The day of the event was cold, but we had a group of people prepared for anything. Everyone had a great day and finished well. We trained many first-time marathoners, and they all finished with smiles on their faces. Four of the first-timers finished in under 4:30!
Running on the Biltmore Estate is a wonderful experience. As a participant, you get to see parts of the estate that are not open to the public. You will run through acres of vineyards with gorgeous views of the mountains of North Carolina, the French Broad River and the unparalleled beauty of the Biltmore Estate. It is a must-see location.
What a great way to enjoy 26.2 miles.
Every runner in our training program told us afterwards they were glad they had the technique and race-specific training that the ChiRunning Marathon Training program offers. This challenging event may not get you a marathon PR (it’s a mix of hilly, flat, dirt and paved roads), but it will be a personal favorite because of the beauty and fun of running in such a gorgeous location.
If you cannot join us for the weekly runs, you can get the support you need to be successful with the ChiRunning online training program we designed specifically for this event. Choose from beginner or intermediate levels.
