2024 Biltmore Kiwanis 15k/5k Classic Races
JOIN US FOR THE 24th RUNNING OF THE BILTMORE KIWANIS CLASSIC 15K/5K RACES
May 19, 2024
Presented in 2023 by Blue Ridge Power
We are excited to get back to running on the idyllic Biltmore Estate!.
This race, benefiting the Kiwanis Club of Asheville, deserves to be on every runners bucket-list and will indeed be on every runners “best race” list. Nestled in the blue ridge mountains, the Biltmore Estate was built for George Washington Vanderbilt II between 1889 and 1895 and holds the record of being the largest privately owned house in the United States. The Biltmore-Kiwanis Classic 15k and 5k races have been running on the estate since 1997 and act as the biggest fundraiser for Asheville’s Kiwanis Club.
Both the 15k and the 5k start and end at the same location, of Biltmore Antler Hill Village, on the estate.
The 15k starts at 7:30am and the 5k, just after that at 7:45am.
