The Thomas Wolfe 8K is Asheville’s oldest and most prestigious running event. First run in 1976, the run will celebrate its 44th year in 2021 after taking a break in 2020!

This beautiful autumn run/walk highlights many of Asheville’s favorite sites! Start at the Thomas Wolfe Memorial House in the center of downtown Asheville, run through the historic Montford neighborhood and continue  past Wolfe’s final resting place in the Riverside Cemetery.


Come on out and see why this race has become a deeply rooted Asheville tradition.
