Shamrock 10k - 5k

PART OF THE 2010 ASHEVILLE TRACK CLUB GRAND PRIX SERIES

RESULTS of 2010 Shamrock 10k

RESULTS of 2010 Shamrock 5k

There’s an all new pair of courses for the 2010 Shamrock Races (The Shamrock 10k and Shamrock 5k).  The start and finish is at Asheville Catholic School in North Asheville.  If you’re familiar with the former 10k course it included an uphill climb early in the race to Sunset, followed by some gradual uphill along Sunset and featured a screaming downhill section on North Griffing to the Rose Garden.  In the new 10k course, that uphill climb doesn’t hit until a couple of miles into the race.  But both of these courses look great and I’m glad to see things shaken up a bit.  The race website says these courses are still pending approval by the City of Asheville (Yikes!).

The 5k course is generally flat to downhill in the first half and near mile number two there’s an uphill pull (involving an elevation increase of about 100 feet). This is at the top of Country Club turning onto Griffing (and up around the Rose Garden). Then you’re rewarded with a downhill glide back to Kimberly and a few more short hills to wrestle with.

The races are Saturday, March 13, 2010.  Start/finish is Asheville Catholic School, 12 Culvern St., Asheville, NC 28804.  The 1k fun run starts at 9 AM.  The 10k starts at 9:15 AM.  The 5k starts at 9:15 AM also.
