COVID-19 Update: Woodfin 5K Canceled

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.

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer/defer your registration to the April 24, 2021 Woodfin 5K. We look forward to seeing you next year.

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Woodfin 5K on April 24, 2021.

We understand.  Once we receive your request we'll intiate your refund request. You should see a credit on your card in a day or two. We hope you can join us in 2021.
