Places to Stay

April is a busy time of year in Asheville and Greenville, so we advise booking your hotel rooms as soon as possible. If you have an early start time in the race, you may want to book a room in Asheville on Friday and Greenville on Saturday. If your start time is a bit later, it is probably best to plan your whole stay in downtown Greenville. All teams will start between 5-10 am EST.

Rental Cars

Each team will have one official race vehicle for the relay that will be allowed to enter race transition areas and certain parking lots.  It is recommended that teams have a large SUV, mini-van or 12 passenger van for their team and support items.  Rental car partners will be announced by Summer 2018.
