Don’t miss the Ramble Run at Biltmore Park on May 11th. The 5k/12k race is organized by the Asheville Track Club and sponsored by Mission Health this year. Many other prominent local organizations and businesses are also supporting it.
Ramble Run Draws Runners and Their Supporters
Over one thousand runners and walkers are expected to participate this year, and since it is occurring on Mother’s Day weekend, there is even a special race for children. There are two runs for adults: one is a 5k run and the other is a 12k run. For kids, the Kilometer Fun Run starts at 9:30 a.m.
Course Schedule and Description
The Ramble Run Course begins in Biltmore Park at the Reuter Family YMCA, with the 5k run starting at 8:00 a.m. and the 12k race starting at 8:15 a.m. Participants can expect some challenging climbs on each route and a few windy descents. The Ramble Run neighborhood is on en route providing runners a great view of woods, fields and other landscape features to make the course both challenging and memorable.
What to do After the Ramble Run
Awards Ceremonies are planned for 9:30 and 10:15 a.m., so runners and their loved ones can relax and grab a bite to eat at one of the many fine restaurants in Biltmore Park afterwards. Some may even want to head up to the nearby
Blue Ridge Parkway for a drive or hike.
