The Half Marathon and 5K Races are run through the lovely Bethel Community south of Canton, NC – about a half hour outside of Asheville, NC. Held on the second Saturday in October – the 24th Annual Bethel Half & 5K is October 14, 2017. The fall colors on the trees, the rolling farmlands, the Pigeon River, and the cool weather make this a particularly inviting race event.
The race is sanctioned by the Asheville Track Club and race times are submitted for the ATC Grand Prix Series.
The Half Marathon is USATF Certified #NC12099PH. The races are chip timed by Event Mercenaries, Inc using ChronoTrack B-tag technology. We offer cash prizes to the top female and top male finishers of our half marathon.
The starting address for the race is 630 Sonoma Rd, Waynesville, NC 28786. The start for the half marathon is at 8:30am and the 5k begins at 8:40am.
