New Date: April 24, 2021
In response to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Buncombe County Health Department guidance, the 2020 Woodfin 5K, scheduled for April 25th, has been Canceled. We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
The Woodfin 5K is a major fundraiser for Woodfin Elementary School, one of the oldest and most successful primary schools in North Carolina. Established over a hundred years ago, the school has served the Buncombe County community with pride and distinction.
“By now, most people understand that the COVID-19-Coronavirus poses a significant health risk to members of our community. Guidance from public health authorities and our strong desire to provide a safe and healthy experience for our runners, volunteers, students and the community at-large necessitated making this decision”, said Woodfin 5K Board President Charlie Glazener.
For those preregistered for the 2020 5K - please let us know if you'd like a refund, want to defer your entry to next year, or would like to donate your entry fee. Please click you preference below.
