New for 2022, shuttle tickets are inclusive with race registration fees. Now participants can ride to and from the estate on the shuttles for FREE on race day! Take advantage of shuttling in to the estate and you don’t have to worry about parking and long lines getting into the estate. When registering for the event, you will be asked which shutttle pick-up location you will use on race day.

Want to drive into the estate? No problem. There are designated parking areas near the race start/finish that are convenient for runners. Getting into and on the estate does take time and we highly suggest that you are within Biltmore’s property (front gate) no later than 6 am to make it to the start in time. You will need to have your estate ticket in hand and show this on multiple occasions when entering the estate. All riders in the car with you will also have to show a Biltmore Estate ticket for entrance.
