In honor of moms everywhere, runners will once again flock to Biltmore Park for the second Ramble Run 5K/12K on the Saturday before Mother’s Day – May 12, 2012. Both races offer not only the opportunity of the year to run through the scenic Ramble community in South Asheville, but mother/child categories for those with young and adult children. Women are honored with flowers at the finish line and by proceeds directed to the Women’s Fund of the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina.
Foot Rx will be on hand at the race expo, held on race morning at Town Square Park, and featuring race sponsors from Biltmore Park and beyond. The morning also includes entertainment, great food from Earth Fare and the new Great Beginnings Pediatric Dentistry and Haldeman Orthodontics Kids Kilometer Fun Run.
Also new for 2012, are team categories for corporate, moms and civic group categories. Get your co-workers, friends or club members together and compete among other teams as well as race as an individual.
