Description

The Half Marathon and 5K Run/Walk run through the lovely Bethel Community south of Canton, NC - about a half hour outside of Asheville, NC.  Held on the second Saturday in October - the 28th Annual Bethel Half & 5K is October 9, 2021. The fall colors on the trees, the rolling farmlands, the Pigeon River, and the cool weather make this a particularly inviting race event. 

The 2021 Bethel Half & 5K is hosted by and in support of the Bethel Rural Community Organization
Among other wonderful programs - the BRCO supports a community food pantry, benevolence work (such as assistance with heating bills during cold winters), and rural, historic preservation work, and a college scholarship to a deserving Haywood County student.

We are the oldest half marathon in North Carolina and the third oldest half marathon in the Southeast. The Half Marathon is a USATF Certified Course [ID: NC12099PH]. Both courses are well marked with traffic control at key intersections. Aid Stations are located every 2-2.5 miles with Water/Gatorade only.
