Are you already signed up, or considering running the Asheville Half, Marathon or both next Spring? On March 12th and 13th, Asheville, NC, and the Biltmore Estate are welcoming runners for a weekend of running. The past three years the Half and Full Marathons were run at the same time on the same day. In 2016, the Half is on Saturday, and the Full is on Sunday. Running both means you will be running what they’ve coined the Backyard to Vineyard Challenge! This level of challenge will bring in all sorts of running fans for an amazing weekend in one of the most beautiful and hip towns in all of North Carolina.
Right now, through September 15th, they are offering a free “In Training Tee shirt” for those that sign up with a new registration. The picture above shows you where to go to register, and please let them know I sent you! In the referral box at checkout use “INVITEDBYPAULAMA”. In the discount code box enter code “2016EARLYBIRDTEE” and the good folks in Asheville will send you an awesome shirt to train in.
Come run with me in Asheville next year! I’ve run the Half and Full at this amazing destination race, and let me tell you, these folks do races right! Since the regular cost of the training shirt is $25, for every person that signs up between now and September 15th, I will make a personal donation in the same amount to my NYC Marathon charity, the James Blake Foundation.
Run a great race, or two! Get a free shirt, and I donate to charity. How awesome is that?
I love the idea of an ‘in training’ tee shirt.
