Shut-In Ridge Race
November 2 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The origins of the Shut In race date back to December 13, 1980, when some 64 intrepid men and women assembled to clamor over rocks, roots, and fallen leaves as they followed the trail of the same name originally blazed by George Vanderbilt that led from his home, Biltmore, to his hunting lodge up on Mount Pisgah. Runners have continued that tradition now for 39 years, making Shut In one of the oldest continuous-running races in the region. This year will be the 40th anniversary.
