2015RoyalTrifectaLogoAll for fun, and fun for all, this Biltmore Estate experience will surely be the stuff of legend. The gauntlet has been thrown down. The cup is up for grabs. Do you have what it takes to triumph over the ROYAL TRIFECTA CHALLENGE?

With a trinity of exquisite races at the Estate on our 2016 calendar, we take your Biltmore experience one step further by offering yet another test of will! If you can manage to finish ALL THREE of our 2016 races at Biltmore, you will be able to lay claim to the prizes that lie in wait for those with the grit to complete our Challenge.

To complete THE ROYAL TRIFECTA CHALLENGE, runners must successfully complete these three of these 2016 Biltmore races:

The Asheville Marathon OR Half on March 12 + 13th, 2016

The Biltmore/Kiwanis Classic 15k OR 5k race on May 15th, 2016

The Asheville Duathlon, 10k Off-Road Run, OR Gravel Grinder Bike Race on September 13th, 2016

Those who successfully accomplish the task will receive their retribution at the close of the events on September 11th, 2016. Finishers will receive a special ‘ROYAL TRIFECTA CHALLENGE MEDAL’ and other royal prizes! If you can “Du the Du” 10k, or grind some gravel, go the distance in the marathon or half, and lay down a classic performance at the Kiwanis race, all that separates you from some sweet prizes are the distances that make up our Biltmore Estate races and the manpower (or womanpower) needed to cover them.
