The High Country Half Marathon is the third and final race in the 2021 High Country Triple Crown series. The course starts on ASU’s campus and follows a picturesque 13.1 miles along Winkler’s Creek and Shull’s Mill. The race ends with a two-mile downhill stretch taking in the most spectacular views in North Carolina. All participants will enjoy the post-race celebration in Davant Park with live music and refreshments provided by local breweries and restaurants. For people entertaining the idea of running the Grandfather Marathon, this race follows most of the first half of that race.
