As historically true, the Asheville Half Marathon at Biltmore Estate has filled up before the first of the year!
(The 2016 Asheville MARATHON still has spots available, only the half marathon is full at this time.)
There are still six ways you can gain entry to the 2016 half marathon race…
1. Run for a 2016 CHARITY PARTNER
The Cindy Platt Boys & Girls Club of Transylvania County is a local, youth-development organization serving school-aged youth ages 5-18, to help them become productive, well-mannered citizens.

5. Join the Waitlist
The 2016 AVL Half Marathon waitlist has been activated. You must fully pay for the half marathon to be included on the waitlist. Registering for the waitlist does not guarantee entry into the 2016 half marathon. Entries will be given to waitlist participants, on a first-come, first-serve basis, when half marathon registered participants cancel or defer their entries to the 2017 event.
If you do not get into the 2016 event, you will receive a discount code for 100% of what you paid for the waitlist registration to be used for the 2017 event.
All participants on the waitlist will be notified by March 1st if they get a spot in the race. Register for Waitlist HERE.
If you want a guaranteed half marathon entry we suggest you sign up for the Backyard to Vineyard Challenge, a VIP package or the Royal Trifecta Challenge or join one of our charities as a fundraiser for their charity.
