Running, both road and trail, has a major part of the athletic scene in Asheville and the western North Carolina Mountains. One of the more important running organizations, since its founding in 1972, is the Asheville Track Club. Located in Asheville, the ATC has been instrumental in promoting running as a sport and providing a means for interested individuals to participate and improve as runners. Another object of the club has been the holding of races for all levels and types, from fun runs for young children to championship races such as the Shut-in-Ridge Trail Run. Their website has the most comprehensive race calendar for Western North Carolina.
