Race through Waynesville this spring
The Gateway to the Smokies Half Marathon and Mighty Four Miler will return to Waynesville this year, stepping off Saturday, April 2.
Both distances — 13.2 and 4 miles — offer a beautiful run route through and around downtown Waynesville. Honoring local hero Riley Howell, who gave his own life to save classmates from an active shooter at UNC Charlotte in 2019, the Mighty Four Miler is a fundraiser for the Riley Howell Foundation Fund, which supports organizations that benefit victims of gun violence. Both races are organized by Glory Hound Events.
