3 Awesome Upgrades for the 20th Annual Biltmore Kiwanis 15k and 5k

cam16746-zf-3006-79085-1-072

Join us for the 20th anniversary edition of the Biltmore 15k/5k Classic Races!

*New for 2017*

1. You asked for it! Each year on our race surveys we are asked to have a beautiful award designed to commemorate the runner experience at Biltmore Estate. For the 20th running edition of the event we are offering a one-of-a-kind, special edition finisher award for both 5k and 15k runners. Finisher awards can be purchased thru online registration until March 31st. Awards will be handed out to finishers that have pre-purchased at both awards ceremonies.

2. Course certification – Due to the construction on the estate over the past several years, the mile markers have been moved and need updated. For 2017, we will have updated re-certified 15k and 5k courses. You will get the same views and same courses, just more accurate mile markers on race day!

3. May is a busy time of year in the mountains of Western North Carolina. We have secured a limited number of hotel rooms for our participants on a first-come-first serve basis at DoubleTree Hotel in Biltmore Forest. Click HERE to reserve your room today!

We hope you will join us on May 21, 2017 for the 20th Anniversary of the Biltmore/Kiwanis Classic Races!

Join Us for the 2017 Royal Trifecta Challenge

2017 ROYAL TRIFECTA CHALLENGE

With a trinity of exquisite races at the Biltmore Estate on our 2017 calendar, we thought we would 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 register for AND complete these three of these 2017 Biltmore races:

CAM17231-(ZF-9802-58805-1-018)

The Asheville Marathon OR Half on March 11 + 12th, 2017

The Biltmore/Kiwanis Classic 15k OR 5k race on May 21st, 2017

The Asheville Off Road Series which includes, the Asheville Duathlon, 10k Off-Road Run, OR Gravel Grinder Bike Events on September 10th, 2017

 

Those who successfully accomplish the task will receive their reward at the close of the events at the Asheville Off Road Series on September 10th, 2017. 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.

If you are wishing to participate in the 2017 Royal Trifecta challenge you will need to click Register Now! button below and submit the registration form to be considered among the royal reward receivers on September 10, 2017.

**PLEASE NOTE: You must also fill out the individual registrations for each event. Filling out the form below does NOT sign you up for each of these events. These events tend to sell out rather quickly so don’t delay in signing up!**

Biltmore-Kiwanis-Runners-Tees-2014The 15K begins at the Winery, climbs to Deerpark Restaurant.  Following is an undulating descent and rise along the main road to Biltmore House, where runners will loop in front of the massive main entrance doors. Next, runners will enter the Walled Garden, pass by the Azalea Garden and lagoon along the French Broad River, and then kick to the finish on their return to the Winery.
