The Cradle to Grave 5k will be on paved trails including the new Forest Discovery Trail and the Forest Festival Trail at the Cradle of Forestry in America Historic Site. This 3.1 mile run will take place entirely within the boundaries of the Cradle of Forestry. This truly is a great family event. You will pass an antique logging train, the original trout hatchery in Pisgah National Forest, and by the historical buildings along the Biltmore Campus Trail. Enjoy incredible views while being directed along your way by the students and residents that called the mountains their home in the late 1800s early 1900s. Remain at the Cradle of Forestry after the race to enjoy the Forest Discovery Center with the entire family. Pre and Post Race Camping is available in designated areas of Pisgah Forest. Registration for camping is limited and available at time of race registration. For more information see our website at www.cradletograverace.com
Join us after the races for yummy food, great music and a beverage from our buddies at Oskar Blues Brewery.
