Both races are run entirely on the scenic grounds of Biltmore estate. The 15K begins at the Winery, climbs to the Deerpark Restaurant then descends and climbs along the main road to Biltmore House where runners will loop in front of the massive main entrance doors of the house. Runners next enter the Walled Garden, pass by the Azalea Garden and lagoon along the French Broad River, and then finish by returning to the Winery. The first half of the course has two challenging hills, while the second half is down-hill to flat terrain. The 5K course will be a flat, out and back course starting at the Winery and paralleling the French Broad River.
