THE RAMBLE RUN
On May 11, 2013 (Mother’s Day Weekend) it’s expected that over 1,000 runners and walkers will once again participate in this exciting race. The 3rd annual “Ramble Run at Biltmore Park” will offer both 12K and 5K races organized by the Asheville Track Club and presented by Mission Health.
Here are a few comments from past participants:
We had a great time! Can’t wait to do it again next year!
Thanks for a super race. 12k course was trying. Lol. Looking forward to next year.
This was my first 5K and I think I may be hooked. Thanks for such a great first experience!
First 5K and I made it! Beautiful course inside the Ramble.
Thank you to all that worked so hard to put this event on. It was a great race and a beautiful course. I will be back next year.
Both my lungs are still in tact.
Great race. Loved it, Loved it, Loved it!
Starting and finishing at Biltmore Park® Town Square and running through The Ramble® Biltmore Forest, both races are scenic and enjoyable, yet challenging. They follow a course that one runner compared to “running on the Blue Ridge Parkway without the cars.”
Runners will follow Schenck Parkway in Biltmore Park through The Ramble’s south gate to the 5K turnaround at Overlook Park. The 12K course continues through The Ramble past Longmeadow Park, along the paved Dingle Creek trail, over Bow Bridge and back to Biltmore Park Town Square. See the course map.
A fitness expo, healthy food from Earth Fare, music and other post race festivities await participants and their families at the finish. Whether you’ve been racing in the Asheville area for years or are brand new to running, this is one event you won’t want to miss.
New for 2013: In addition to Mother/Child teams, cash prizes, free childcare, kids fun run, and fabulous pre/post race festivities, the Ramble Run is adding a school fundraising component. All public and private schools in Buncombe County may participate in Zip’s School Challenge. The schools with the most participants (teachers, students, aunts, uncles, grandparents) per school enrollment are eligible to win cash prizes! [Click Here for Complete Details].
