2024 Falafel 5K
The only race in town that ends with tasty falafel returns Sunday, May 19. Run, jog, walk, or Splash + Dash with an optional 600-yard swim!
Don’t miss out on the Asheville JCC’s Falafel 5K on Sunday, May 19! Run, jog, walk, or Splash + Dash in the Falafel 5K to enjoy beautiful springtime in North Asheville, enjoy a delicious falafel, and compete to win valuable prizes.
More than your average 5k! Turn your race day into a multi-sport excursion with a Splash + Dash! A limited number of athletes can register to swim 600 yards in a professionally timed “Splash” before heading over to the start line for the Falafel 5K “Dash.” We will track your times for both events, but your transition time will not be counted. We are also holding a youth “Splash + Dash” where a limited number of kids ages 8-12 will swim 300 yards and then run 1K.
8 am: Adult Splash+Dash
9 am: Kids Splash+Dash
10 am: Falafel 5K
Registered participants will receive a race T-shirt and a voucher for a free falafel.
