Third Annual Asheville Marathon will once again be at the Biltmore Estate, Sunday March 15th 2015, beginning at 7:30 am. While it is sold out, with 1,400 participants, there is now a wait list and if you don't get in this year, your wait list number will guarantee you a spot in the 2016 Asheville Marathon.
Runners and spectators, do be aware that the race start is located at the Winery and Antler Hill Village - six miles from the entrance. Because of distance and heavy traffic that morning, it will take an additional 20 - 25 minutes to get to the race start once inside the gate. If you prefer not to drive in, for an extra $10 jump on a shuttle bus at the Doubletree Hotel and you can get a ride right to the start line. Be sure and check schedules.
