20th Annual DuPont Forest 12km Trail Race –
March 21, 2020
We are excited to announce the date for this year’s DuPont 12K! This will be our 20th annual DuPont Forest Trail Race.
The race takes place Saturday, March 21st, 2020.
Start time: 10:00 AM.
There will be hot food post-race.
Race Swag included in registration.
The course takes place on a series of forest roads and single track and should be described as moderately challenging. There are a few challenging climbs. This is a great race for someone who is looking to run their first trail race or your seasoned mountain runner looking to do a fast trail race.
Registration is only $35 until Feb 10, 2020, and then $40 after that.
New for 2020: There will be a race cap of 225 runners, so be sure to register early to guarantee your spot. We would love to have all of you back for one of Asheville’s longest standing trail races. Proceeds go back to the DuPont State Forest.
