Cherokee Harvest Half Marathon and 5K

19 Oct 2013

Both races will start together in the parking lot, designated by the large, blue inflatable arch. The races will finish on the stadium track at the Acquoni Expo Center. The course will give runners a flavor of Cherokee through most of its communities. Except for one hill at mile 6, the half marathon course is mostly flat on paved roads.
Race proceeds will benefit the Madison Hornbuckle Children's Cancer Foundation serving children 17 and under with cancer in Jackson, Graham, Swain, and Haywood Counties. Over $10,000 was raised from the inaugural race in 2012
