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 5-9 am EST.
We are excited to have a host hotel in Greenville – Aloft Greenville Downtown! We will have a welcome reception and packet pick-up event on Thursday, April 12th from 5-7:30pm at Aloft, so come early and stay for the long weekend. Asheville is a short one-hour drive from downtown Greenville and Aloft is a 15 minute walk from the finish line.

The Westin Poinsett Hotel – Downtown Greenville – $189/night
Holiday Inn Express & Suites (Woodruff Road) – 7 miles from finish line – $129-$139/night. Call the hotel at 864.678.555 to reserve.
