Runners waiting to start the 2015 Thomas Wolfe 8k
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 Asheville Read to Succeed. In 2021, we were able to raise over $1000 for this amazing organization.
