Outdoors: Foot race

  • The Asheville Citizen-Times Half Marathon rounds all the corners: scenic views, historic neighborhoods, the bustle of downtown and even tranquil Beaver Lake. Each mile of the course features a comfort station with water (sports drinks and snacks are available as racers progress), and a host of medical staff is situated throughout the event in case of emergency. Not sure you’re up to the task? Organizers have included a walker-friendly 5K, for less ambitious runners, and the free Earth Fare Ketchup Run — the last 1.1 miles of the main race — for kids. — D.S.
