NOTE: THIS IS PART OF THE ASHEVILLE TRACK CLUB GRAND PRIX
This is a very popular and enjoyable race. The course is not terribly difficult and features many residential streets, often shady. And now for a Spontaneous Mini-Round of Obscure Race Trivia (grab your signaling device). What do the Apple Festival 8k and another popular 8k in Western North Carolina (the Thomas Wolfe 8k) have in common? I’m not referring to the obvious (they’re both 8k, there are some hills) – but something you’d know if you’ve run both of them. That’s right – both courses pass through a cemetery.
OK, enough of that. The race starts at 8 AM. Last year the published results were a bit delayed but the race organizers have taken corrective action and will have the timing done by Setup Events. The organizers have stated the results will be published within 24 hours of the race.
