The 8k race will begin and end in Patton Park, Hendersonville NC. Runners will follow the Oklawaha Greenway that runs between Patton Park and Jackson Park for an out and back race. The Greenway is a paved trail that connects the two city parks. There will be 3 Aid stations on the course, and traffic management on the two road crossings. The course is relatively flat.
The 4 mile 2 person team relay will begin in Patton Park. Runner 1 will run to Jackson Park and exchange with runner 2 who will then run back to Patton Park to the finish. Transportation will be provided for both runners.
The Ability Celebration Mile will take place at Patton Park. We encourage the entire community to come out and celebrate with vocational solutions employees, clients, volunteers and families as we recognize Everyone’s Ability. The mile is an excellent family event, strollers are welcome.
