NOTE: THIS IS PART OF THE ASHEVILLE TRACK CLUB 2010 GRAND PRIX SERIES
I ran this last year and it’s a well-organized Sunday afternoon race for a very good cause and features a nice downtown/Grove Park course. If you run the Asheville Citizen-Times Half Marathon the day before this, part of the course will look familiar.
From the race organizers …
