It was a fabulous night to run and celebrate at our 9th race. We are grateful to all of our runners who continue to enthusiastically support this event. Special thanks to our sponsors; the volunteers from Connect Buncombe – the event’s beneficiary; the residents of Beverly Hills and Gashes Creek who create such a welcoming atmosphere; and the staff of Highland Brewing Company. We are already thinking about how to celebrate our 10th anniversary and looking forward to seeing everyone there next year. Results and photos are posted below.

The Highland Brewing Night Flight rolling course will take you from Highland to the Beverly Hills neighborhood of East Asheville and through the Asheville Municipal Golf Course. As you leave Beverly Hills there will be a downhill section before crossing Swannanoa River Road and hooking up with Azalea Road before taking Gashes Creek Road to the its end where you will meet up with a trail leading back to the brewery and the finish line in the Meadow.
The course will be staffed with volunteers and police throughout.
While the course is not designed for walkers, walkers who can maintain a minimum pace of 15 minutes per mile are welcome!
Well behaved leashed dogs are welcome to participate as our parents with strollers.
Runners are able to purchase a special, one-time race shirt (tee or tank) during online registration to mark the occasion in addition to the race registration for $10. The deadline to register and order your shirt size is July 5.
100% of race proceeds will be directed to Connect Buncombe for the development of greenways in Asheville and Buncombe County.
