We are excited to be offering a live race with the Hanukkah 8K again! Running the 8K helps you stay connected to other runners in Asheville, motivates you to stay healthy and active during the winter months, and gives the opportunity to participate in a competitive race complete with prizes for winners! Winners are announced on Sunday after the race. Prizes are handed out to winners following the race.
Interested in participating in the 8K as a walker? Below is a map of a 5K designed just for walkers who want to participate in the Hanukkah 8K and aren’t yet ready to run the full distance. It’s only $25 to walk—a great way to participate in the 8K, get exercise, and socialize at the same time!
For more information about joining the Hanukkah 8K as a runner or walker, email JCC Community Life and Development Assistant Tami Gross.
Here’s a map of the Hanukkah 8K race course, if you choose to run the traditional 8K course on your own. Click here to see a complete list of directions for the race course, including streets names.
