Ville to Ville Craft Brew Relay
April 14, 2018 @ 5:00 am - 9:00 pm
Hendersonville is set to serve as the destination for an exciting new adventure race. The Ville to Ville Craft Brew Relay will take place on April 14, with teams of runners covering 73 miles of scenic byways between Asheville and Greenville, S.C. This unique relay is designed to celebrate the region’s outstanding craft beer tradition and its majestic natural beauty. “Our goal,” states director Zack Hall, “is to deliver a top-notch event people can do with their friends, that matches the breathtaking beauty of this region.” Fifteen hundred runners and beer enthusiasts from 35 states, D.C, and Canada will start their day-long journey at the historic Highland Brewing Company, Asheville’s first brewery. Teams of six runners will each run two legs ranging from 3.5 to nearly 10 miles along the course. Every team will utilize a support vehicle along the 73-mile route, transporting runners from one designated transition area to the next. The middle portion of the course will run through Fletcher before heading to Hendersonville and Southern Appalachian Brewery. Stops along the course include East Flat Rock, Tuxedo, and Travelers Rest, S.C. Although the race is sold out, the event is open to the public and can be seen best locally at Southern Appalachian Brewery or along the Oklawaha Greenway from 10am to 2pm. Registration for the 2019 event begins on April 16 with a limited number of 350 teams. More information about the relay can be found at www.villetovillerelay.com.
