We are following current industry standards, as well as Biltmore Estate & State of North Carolina requirements for creating a safe race environment with the pandemic. The permit has been signed and approved with Biltmore Estate for the 2022 event. As the public health situation changes, precautions could be updated to include required rapid COVID testing, regardless of vaccination status.
TRANSFER FROM IN-PERSON TO VIRTUAL: You can transfer your in-person registration to a virtual registration for free at any point before the week of the race. After Sunday, March 13th at midnight, transferring to the virtual event will cost $10 and can be done up until the start of the race.
REFUNDS: Participants can request to be removed from the race for a $40 refund up until October 31st at midnight. After that date, so no refunds will be given.
CANCELLATION: As we all know, the pandemic changes things quickly! We ask that you be flexible and patient as we may have to adjust things for this event up until the event takes place. If there are new limits on gathering restrictions set forth by the state of NC, we will adjust the start procedure to accommodate this limit and proceed with the event if possible. In the event that the U.S. or NC government, Buncombe County or City of Asheville declares a new stay-at-home order and we are not able to have the in person event, all ‘in person’ event registrations will automatically be converted to the Virtual Event.
If the race gets switched to a virtual event, you will have your swag mailed to you (shirt + medal) for free. These items can be picked up locally or mailed for free if you are from out of town.
