Asheville's Premier Ten Mile Race

The Flying Squirrel Ten Miler

$55 8:00AM EDT - 11:30AM EDT Registration Opens January 1, 2024 at 10:00am EST


Experience some of the best road running in Asheville with The Flying Squirrel Ten Miler, Asheville's premier 10 Mile road race presented by Jus' Running. Enjoy the ease and convenience of a road race with the spectacular views and seclusion of a mountain race. The race starts and finishes just blocks from downtown Asheville and then promptly takes runners on the winding roads of Town Mountain. Participants will enjoy shaded mountain roads typically only used by locals, such as the beautiful Sunset Drive and Patton Mountain Road. One thing about The Flying Squirrel Ten Miler is sure: you've got to "earn" those views. The Southern Appalachians are hilly and so is The Flying Squirrel Ten Miler.

Race Beneficiary

The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy (SAHC) permanently protects and stewards our region's most beloved natural areas. Since 1974, over 80,000 acres of unique plant and animal habitat, clean water sources, farmland, scenic beauty, and places for people to enjoy outdoor recreation have been permanently protected in the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee. SAHC is committed to creating and supporting equitable, healthy and thriving communities for everyone in our region. 

We value our local Western North Carolina community and are committed to giving back. A portion of our race proceeds go towards our charity partner for that year. For the inaugural Flying Squirrel Ten Miler we are proud to be supporting a Western North Carolina based non-profit who is helping to conserve the endangered Carolina Flying Squirrel. The Carolina Flying Squirrel is a subspecies of the Northern Flying Squirrel and requires high elevation habitat to thrive. Read more about the Carolina Flying Squirrel here:
