I think I’ll refer to this as The race formerly known as the Folkmoot 5k.
You can’t make this kind of stuff up, folks. This race is part of the Asheville Track Club Grand Prix series and suddenly the organizers decide to take this fairly popular 5k race in the Western North Carolina running scene and do what anyone would do: slice off a kilometer and shave this thing down to 4k. Let’s see how this thing flies, but my bet is that a couple of years from now we’ll be saying “remember that time they made the Folkmoot 5k into the Folkmoot 4.01k?”
The Folkmoot 4.01K Run/Walk and Kid’s Fun Run will take place the weekend before the Festival begins on Saturday, July 14 at 8am. New course in 2012! A bit shorter than a traditional 5K race, Folkmoot’s new 4.01K will run through downtown Waynesville, starting on Main Street.
