ASHEVILLE, NC – The crown jewel of the Western North Carolina road racing scene will be back back for its 30th consecutive running on July 25 this year. The Bele Chere 5K is hosted by the Asheville Track Club and presented by Southcliff. Once again the race will be headquartered at historic McCormick Field. The course represents what running in Asheville is all about: a few moderate climbs, a few fast downhills and friendly people to cheer you on at the race. The race will finish two blocks from the stadium so it is just a short walk for post-race refreshments – courtesy of Citi Stop and Dunkin Donuts – the finish of the Asheville Tourists Fun Run and the awards ceremony.
Face fees are $25 for entries received after July 18 and on the day of the race. Asheville Track Club members receive a $3 discount for the 5K.
The fee for the Fun Run is $7 for everyone.
$2 from each 5K entry will be donated equally to the Asheville Track Club’s shoe program and the Association for Retarded Citizens.
Registration can be done on-line at www.setupevents.com until Wednesday, July 24th at 10 p.m. or by completing the paper entry form.
Military units, middle and high school teams, youth camps and youth running clubs may register for $15 each if 5 or more runners register from a single organization. Individual entries must be submitted together in a single envelope by July 19 to receive the discount.
On-line registration is not available for group entries.
