Please join us for the Asheville Jewish Community Center’s 2nd annual JCC Hanukkah 8K! The race begins at 9:15 am on December 10 at the Asheville JCC, 236 Charlotte Street. Runners and walkers of all ages are encouraged to participate.
The event is a community-wide celebration of the upcoming 8 day Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights. Proceeds of the JCC Hanukkah 8K will benefit Shalom Children’s Center.
Race day registration is 7-9 A.M. on Sunday morning, December 10, at the Jewish Community Center.
In conjunction with the Hanukkah 8K, there will be a FREE kids’ race starting at 8:30 am where kids will be challenged to run 8 laps around the JCC parking lot. Those kids that raise $25 or more in pledges will receive a t-shirt.

BECOME A Hanukkah 8k ATHLETE AMBASSADOR!
The JCC needs help from our active friends to spread the word about the newest and coolest race to hit Asheville this winter: the JCC’s Hanukkah 8K! In order to qualify to become a JCC Hanukkah 8K 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 Facebook or Instagram account.
WHAT’s A Hanukkah 8k Ambassador?
As a JCC Hanukkah 8K Ambassador, you will be asked to help promote our road race happening on Sunday, December 9. JCC Hanukkah 8K Ambassadors will engage and involve your social media communities in your training regime as you prepare for the race. That means posting to your Facebook or Instagram account at least twice a week with updates and photos of you running, walking, stretching, or eating healthy meals. All you have to do is post beautiful selfies, tag @ashevillejcc and #hanukkah8k and @kickitevents in your posts, and link to the Asheville JCC Hanukkah 8k page on the JCC website! jcc-asheville.org/2018-jcc-hanukkah-8k/
What’s in it for me?
Hanukkah 8K Ambassadors get FREE entry to the race, 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 Hanukkah 8K AMBASSADORs WILL Help:
- Drive traffic to the Asheville JCC website
