All for fun, and fun for all, this Biltmore 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?


To compete, runners must successfully complete three of these 2014 Biltmore races:

The 2nd Annual Asheville Marathon & Inaugural Half on March 16th, 2014

The Kiwanis Classic 15k or 5k race on May 18th, 2014

The Du the Asheville Du or 10k Trail Run on September 14th, 2014


RoyalTriCouponThose who successfully accomplish the task will receive their retribution at the close of the Asheville Du. Finishers will receive a special ‘ROYAL TRIFECTA CHALLENGE AWARD’ and other royal prizes! If you can “Du the Du” or 10k, 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 races and the manpower (or womanpower) needed to cover them.

What happens if the race sells out? Can I still get in?

There are several ways that you may still get a spot in the race when it sells out. When someone cancels or changes their race entry, this will free up spots to the race, which will allow someone new to register for the event. Please continue to check the imATHLETE registration page up to the race date to see if any spots have opened up. We will also post updates on our Facebook page as we see entries come available.


A waitlist will launch when the entire race has been sold out. The waitlist lets you sign up for a chance to participate in the event and is a handy way to acquire a race entry after the event has sold out. Signing up for a Wait List does not guarantee you will get in the event.

The terms for an event’s waitlist will be printed at the bottom of the first screen of imATHLETE registration only if an event is filled to capacity.

If you sign up on a waitlist, you will be notified if a slot in the race opens up for you. If you do NOT get into an event, you will not receive a refund for the waitlist slot. imATHLETE does not offer refunds. Instead, you will receive a Gift Code from the event organizer that can be used to register for the 2014 Biltmore/Kiwanis Race.

To sign up for the waitlist please visit our registration page on imATHLETE. No transfers or refunds from the waitlist.

Cancellation policy:

We understand that emergencies happen, people get sick and injuries happen. Participants may cancel race entries up to May 6th and receive a 50% credit towards the 2014 Biltmore/Kiwanis race.

All entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
