The Asheville Brewing Company sponsored Superhero 5K returns this weekend, daring superheros everywhere to come out and compete to see who is truly the greatest among them all. Giving mild mannered folks the chance to extend use of their superhero inspired costumes for one more day, the annual event has all kinds of people shedding their secret identities and dignity to run around downtown Asheville in outfits ranging from inspiring to ridiculous.
The race starts at the Hot Spot on Hilliard Avenue and heads north into Montford before returning and ending at the Mill Room event venue at Asheville Brewing Co. (66 Asheland Ave, Asheville, NC). Winners will be announced after the race and Asheville Brewing, being the heroes they are, will provide the beer (which gives us our superhuman strength) and pizza for race runners and volunteers. Helping the community, delicious pizza, and amazing beers should give all us plenty of motivation to run this 5K.
Registration is $30 until midnight October 30, and on Race Day the fee goes up to $35. You can pick up packets on Saturday, November 1 from 1:00-4:00 pm. Route details and registration information is at this website,
And remember, darlings…NO CAPES!
