This beautiful autumn run/walk highlights many of Asheville’s favorite sites. Start at the Thomas Wolfe Memorial House in the center of downtown, run through the historic Montford neighborhood and continue past Wolfe’s final resting place in the Riverside Cemetery.
The race helps support Read to Succeed Asheville/Buncombe. In 2021, we were able to raise over $1000 for this amazing organization. Let’s see what we we can accomplish this year!
