2014 Du the Asheville Du + 10k Trail Run:

Weve moved the event to a different time of year! Now, on Sunday, September 14th, 2014, endurance athletes of all abilities will step to the start line, hearts booming in anticipation, to compete in the 2nd annual duathlon or inaugural trail run events held at Biltmore. Are you ready to Du the Asheville Du + 10k Trail Run?! The Duathlon is a 5k road run, off-road 10 mile bike and then another 5k run through packed dirt and single track, designed to challenge both mind and body. The newly added 10k Trail Run will meander through the beautiful grounds of the Biltmore Estate.

For the French aristocrat in all of us, this rough-cut, crown-emerald of a race sweeps participants through a mystical journey, back to a time, when the estate might have resembled an 15th century countryside plantation, complete with a game-stocked forest, working vineyards, and a cold mountain river rushing by. Racers on this day will be lords of the land they claim under fast plowing feet and spokes.

And the seminal moment is a pace quickening dash across the Estates signature 264 foot bridge standing mightily over the French Broad River. As racers pump across this stone-hardened trestle, theyll slice through a refreshing undulating zephyr, forged below in the veins of the ancient river. Crossers are flanked by a dual set of cloverleaf-style railings, spanning the entire corridor, which unites the western and eastern hemispheres of Biltmores expansive 8000 acre property.

Course Information:

Duathletes will start their adventure with a 5k run on paved roads that will be a flat, out and back course starting at the Winery and paralleling the French Broad River. Then transition to mountain bikes and ride onto packed dirt roads over through the west side of the estate, where racers will slip by working vineyards, normally off-limits to the public. The bike will finish with a couple miles on paved trails on the east side. The 2nd run is for the adventure seeker, as it is the most challenging leg of the race, complete with dirt roads and technical single track
