Join us for the 23rd running of the Biltmore Kiwanis 15k / 5k Classic Races
May 21, 2023
After having to take a break from racing for 3 years we are excited to get back to running on the idyllic Biltmore Estate in 2023.
This race deserves to be on every runners bucket-list and will indeed be on every runners “best race” list. Nestled in the blue ridge mountains, the Biltmore Estate was built for George Washington Vanderbilt II between 1889 and 1895 and holds the record of being the largest privately owned house in the United States. The Biltmore-Kiwanis Classic 15k and 5k races have been running on the estate since 1997 and act as the biggest fundraiser for Asheville’s Kiwanis Club.
The race benefits the Kiwanis Club of Asheville.
Find out all about the Events and Programs supported by the Kiwanis Club.
Both the 15k and the 5k start and end at the same location, of Antler Hill Village, on the estate.
The 15k starts at 7:30am and the 5k, just after that at 7:45am.
