Biltmore Kiwanis Classic Races

Postponed to 2022

On February 16, we were informed by the Biltmore Estate that our races, scheduled for May 16, would not be allowed to go on.  Over the past few months, we have submitted plans to operate the event in a manner that would be safe for all involved, which complied with both the CDC and industry standards and were approved by Buncombe County.  Unfortunately, this was still not enough to satisfy the Estate.

We hope you understand we were excited about having our races on May 16 and this decision by Biltmore is as shocking to us as it is to you.  We appreciate your understanding.

Thank you to all who responded to our question on how to handle your entry.  We will be working to process all of these over the next two weeks.  Thank you to those who did not respond for your donation to the Kiwanis Club of Asheville.

Course(s)

General
Both races are run entirely on the scenic grounds of the Biltmore Estate. During the event, vehicular traffic will be limited and controlled. Both courses are USATF certified. Chip timing will be used for both races. Pre-race training prior to the event is prohibited since the entire course is on paved roads with heavy vehicular traffic and on the private property of the Biltmore Estate. Due to directional flow for traffic, it will not be possible to drive the course as it is to be run.

All participants must be off the course prior to 9:45 a.m.

There will not be aid stations this year.  Please plan on being self-sufficient.

15K Course Description
The 15K course is run entirely on the scenic grounds of the Biltmore Estate. Beginning at the Winery Village area, the course climbs to the Deerpark Restaurant then descends and climbs along the main road to Biltmore House, where runners will loop in front of its massive front doors. Runners will then circle through the Walled Garden, pass by the Azalea Garden and lagoon along the French Broad River, and finish by returning to the Winery. The first half of the course has two challenging hills, while the second half is downhill-to-flat.

All 15K runners must be pass the main house by 9:00 AM.

5K Course Description
The 5K course is run entirely on the scenic grounds of the Biltmore Estate. The 5K Course is a flat, out-and-back course starting at the Winery and paralleling the French Broad River. It is a great course to get a running PR!
