The Maggie Valley Moonlight Race this past weekend had 430 runners take to the street, a respectable comeback after a two-year hiatus, boding well for the likelihood the storied race will be on the calendar again next year.
“It was a good crowd. We had so many people thank us for bringing it back. That was the overwhelming thing, whether it was people who had been running it for years or people who lived in Maggie,” said Greg Duff of Glory Hound Events, the race’s organizer.
Sarah Beth Lee of Waynesville was the top female overall winner; Justin TeBockhorst of Asheville was the top male overall winner.
