According to you and the Mountain Xpress, the Falafel 5K is one of WNC’s BEST road races! Come on out and join us as a runner, walker, volunteer or cheerer. The race is chip timed and well organized. Every runner gets a coupon for a falafel sandwich at Congregation Beth Israel’s Cafe Israel event. LOTS of prizes and fun raffles too. This is a great community building event through the gorgeous Norwood Park neighborhood.
This 5K is in honor of Israel Independence Day and hosted in conjunction with Cafe Israel, held that evening at nearby Congregation Beth Israel, 229 Murdock Avenue. Redeem your free falafel coupon at Cafe Israel beginning at 5 pm with savory Israeli dishes; wine tasting and Hi-Wire beer; live music & folk dancing; inflatables & children’s activities; silent & live auctions, and more.
Celebrate your mom and all moms by running this race. In honor of Mother’s Day, a portion of each registration will be donated to the YWCA’s Mother Love program for teen parents.
