This year’s 12th annual Asheville Half Marathon will take runners through the best parts of the city of Asheville, North Carolina.

The Asheville half marathon is a point-to-point race which takes runners on a tour through one of the most charming North Carolina cities. Both courses begin at the heart of downtown Asheville at Pack Square Park.

The course then takes runners through the historic Montford neighborhood, the River Arts District, the French Broad River, and the parks and greenways of Karen Cragnolin Park and Greenway.

Both the marathon and half marathon are USATF sanctioned and certified.

The race itself has entertainment with live music and cheer zones set up along the way and the course itself is scenic and, though a few hills at the beginning of the race, is a fast finish from mile 8 onwards.
