Spring into fall with Cherokee Harvest run

Written by 

The Cherokee Harvest Half-Marathon and 5K will be held at 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, in Cherokee.

Both races will start and finish on the stadium track at the Acquoni Expo Center. The 5K is flat and travels through the main commercial district of Cherokee. The half-marathon ventures into some of Cherokee’s communities and is also flat except for one hill at mile six.

Native Cherokee food, including pumpkin soup, awaits runners at the finish line. The first 300 registered runners will receive a swag package that includes a Nike N7 shirt, a zipped cinch bag and fleece beanie, in addition to the long-sleeve tech shirt and finisher medallion all runners receive. More than 230 runners have registered so far. Cost if $40 for half-marathon or $25 for 5K. www.CherokeeHarvestHalf.com.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
