Not only has the warmer weather arrived, so has the summer race season. After over a year of downtime, racing is back. There will be larger race capacities, full starts, award ceremonies, and even those post-race beers and afterparties everyone loves. Glory Hound Events is excited to present a great roster of summer races in the Asheville area. We are so excited to be back and look forward to seeing y’all at the starting lines this summer.
