2021 JCC Hanukkah 8K
The JCC Hanukkah 8K is a community-wide celebration of the 8-day Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights. Proceeds of the JCC Hanukkah 8K will benefit The Asheville Jewish Community Center.
The 6th annual Asheville Jewish Community Center Hanukkah 8K will take place on Sunday, December 12, 2021.
We are excited to be offering a live race with the Hanukkah 8K this year! Running the 8K will help you stay connected to other runners in Asheville, motivate you to stay healthy and active during the winter months, and participate in a competitive race complete with prizes for winners! Winners will be announced on Sunday after the race. Prizes will be handed out to winners following the race.
Packet pick-up will take place at the JCC on 236 Charlotte Street on the Thursday and Friday before 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 who aren’t yet ready to run the full distance. It’s only $25 to walk, and walking the beautiful course with a friend is a great way to participate in the 8K, get exercise, and socialize at the same time! Have questions about walking the JCC Hanukkah 8K?
For more information about joining the Hanukkah 8K as a runner or walker, email JCC Community Life and Development Assistant Tami Gross.
