Don’t miss out on the only 5K race in Asheville that ends with a Falafel sandwich. Run with us on Sunday, April 30 at 10 am at the Asheville Jewish Community Center at 236 Charlotte Street! A local favorite, the Falafel 5K was voted one of WNC’s BEST road races in the 2015 Mountain Xpress “Best of WNC” poll.
The Falafel 5K is in honor of Israeli Independence Day and is hosted in conjunction with Cafe Israel, a Congregation Beth Israel event held on the same day, April 30, at nearby Congregation Beth Israel, 229 Murdock Avenue. Following the Falafel 5K, don’t miss Beth Israel’s celebration of Israeli culture where you can experience savory Israeli dishes; wine tasting & Hi-Wire beer; live music & folk dancing; inflatables & children’s activities; silent & live auctions, and more. Redeem your FREE Falafel coupon at Cafe Israel beginning at 11 am.
All registered participants for the 5K will receive a race shirt (unless the t-shirt free option is chosen).
NEW this year: in 2017, you can sign up for the Falafel 5K and the Hanukkah 8K as part of a race series and pay for your registration for both events at the same time!
Become a JCC Falafel 5K Ambassador!
The JCC needs help from our active friends to spread the word about our annual race happening this spring at the Jewish Community Center: The JCC Falafel 5K! In order to qualify to become a JCC Falafel 5K Ambassador, all you need is an active lifestyle, be that one of running, biking, swimming, walking, yoga, or whatever your choice of exercise is, and a few social media accounts.
What’s A JCC Falafel 5k Ambassador?
As a JCC Falafel 5K Ambassador, you will be asked to help promote our road race happening on Sunday, April 30, 2017. JCC Falafel 5K Ambassadors will engage and involve their social media communities in their training regime as they prepare for the race. That means posting to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts at least twice a week with updates and photos of their running, walking, or stretching in preparation for the JCC Falafel 5K. All JCC Falafel 5k Ambassadors have to do is post beautiful selfies, tag @ashevillejcc and #falafel5k in your posts, and link to the Asheville JCC Falafel 5k page on the JCC website!
What’s in it for me?
JCC Falafel 5K Ambassadors get FREE entry to the race, a FREE 5K T-shirt, lots of online fame and glory as we share and love your posts, and all the love from the Asheville JCC you can handle.
JCC Falafel 5K Ambassadors will help:
- Drive traffic to the Asheville JCC website
- Increase Instagram followers, Facebook likes, and event awareness on Twitter.
- Have fun spreading the work about the JCC Falafel 5K to all your friends.
