Thank you to everyone who challenged themselves and the mountain at this epic race at Mountain Air. The fall colors were at the full splendor and we are grateful for all those who came out, including 21 runners who also raced at the AVL Runway 5K that morning. Congratulations also go to Luke Paulson for setting a new male course record. Full results are below. We look forward to seeing you and others again next year.
The 5K is limited to 200 participants
All proceeds from this event benefit Annabelle’s Haven in Burnsville.
Two Runways, Two Races, One Day
The Ascent at Mountain Air 5K is the second of two races in the Asheville area that take place at airports. Earlier that day, the AVL Runway 5K at Asheville Regional Airport will welcome 1,000 runners to race on west taxiway, while airplanes take off and land.
