Gateway to the Smokies Half Marathon will take your breath away…even if the run doesn’t!  The race starts on historic Main Street (corner of Main and Depot) in downtown Waynesville where the sights, sounds, and shops will delight your visual senses.

The exhilaration builds as the route winds through tree lined streets in historic neighborhoods and ascends to spectacular views of the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains.  Soon you can catch your breath as you cruise downhill to the finish line in Frog Level.  This revitalized railroad district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and features interesting shops and one of Waynesville’s 4 craft breweries.
