Welcome to the 4th annual Camp Cedar Cliff Trail Run + Spring Festival held at the camp located five miles east of downtown Asheville. The camp is accessed through The Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove.


The trail races are located throughout Camp Cedar Cliff’s 300 acres of natural mountain forest. The Camp adjoins the beautiful 1,200-acre Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove and is bordered by the Mountains-to-Sea Trail and the Blue Ridge Parkway in Asheville, N.C.


Participants that register before April 13th will be guaranteed a t-shirt! All proceeds will go to the camp.


There will also be an incredible raffle! You can register for it on the day of the race or at packet pick-up the day before. 


Our annual spring festival starts after the race ends, so be sure to come enjoy the fun for that too!
