The Green Mile

A new fast, family-friendly 1 mile run to benefit Asheville Greenworks!


Due to lack of interest, we have decided to cancel this event.  We are hoping to try again next year and will be more aggressive at getting the word out.

Thanks and sorry for any inconvenience!

When?: Saturday, May 27, 2017 (First heats will launch at 9AM)

Where?: Carrier Park (Asheville, NC) - A part of the 2017 Mountain Sports Festival

How much?: $20 to just race. $30 if you want a commemorative t-shirt.

How will it work?: We'll separate runners into chip-timed heats that they'll select and launch them throughout the morning to complete 3.5 laps of Carrier Park's wide .29 mile "Mellowdrome" circuit. Runners will check in, run hard, then stick around for a full day of music, vendors, food, drinks and activities at the Mountain Sports Festival!

A portion of race proceeds will benefit Asheville Greenworks.

A serious racer? Come and set a new mile PR going head-to-head with other local and regional milers.

A recreational, weekend warrior? Awesome! Grab some friends and hit the 1 mile race, then stick around for all the festivities at the Mountain Sports Festival!

Ready to log your first road race? There is no better place to start than a flat 1-mile test. You can do this!

Want to do something positive and active and FUN with your kids? A mile race is the perfect activity and the Mountain Sports Festival is the perfect setting!

Cash prizes for top overall male and female times!
