In addition to our yearly race schedule, Glory Hound Events also produces a number of events that aren’t as competitive. These reflect our experience in event management and include the Power of Pink 5K and Survivor/Honor/Memory Walk and the Asheville Running Experience Urban Odyssey.
The Power of Pink 5K and Survivor/Honor/Memory Walk, an event of the Haywood Health Care Foundation, takes place each year to raise money for mammogram screenings and follow-ups appointment for under served woman of Haywood County. Since the inaugural event 1,338 mammograms and follow-up procedures have been provided to over 800 women.
The Asheville Urban Odyssey, part of the Asheville Running Experience, is one of the areas most unique events. A combination of an urban scavenger hunt and game show, teams of four follow a series of clues to both hidden and well known downtown Asheville locations where they will have to do a specific task before moving on to the next task. After a team receives its’ eighth clue they then make their way to the finish line for one final task!
