Asheville Marathon and Half at Biltmore Estate

Sat March 21 - Sun March 22 Asheville, NC US 28803 Directions
Event: ASHEVILLE HALF MARATHON (Saturday)
We recognize that in early spring, at the start of the racing season, you may not want to engage in a full marathon, or maybe you do but would like to bring a friend that just isn’t up to the whole distance! That’s why we’re bringing back the HALF, Asheville Marathon at Biltmore Estates’ answer to creating an entire destination experience for you, your friends and your family. If you want to experience the typical ‘off-limit’s’, primitive west side of the estate, you’ll have to train and sign up for the full marathon! The west side will remain exclusive for our full marathoners only.

Friends and Family can run the Civilized Side together.

For the first 10 miles, full & half marathoners’ run the same course. Enjoying all the European Gardens, the exquisite views of the Biltmore House, and the manicured grounds. When the full marathoners break for the primitive west side, half marathoners will complete their last three miles along the beautiful, rustic banks of the French Broad River.
