Join other trail enthusiasts to learn about and celebrate the Mountains-to-Sea Trail with National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, Jennifer Pharr Davis, on Tuesday evening, August 29 at Highland Brewing in Asheville. Jen, a world-renowned hiker, author, and speaker, hiked the Appalachian Trail in 46 days in 2011. From August to November 2017, she will be hiking all 1175 miles of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail (MST), from the Great Smokies to the Outer Banks. On this MST hike, Jen's not out to set a speed record. Instead her goal is raise awareness and support for her homestate trail as she hikes and explores North Carolina with her husband Brew and two young children (4-year-old Charley and 8-month-old Gus). On August 29, she'll talk about what inspires her about the MST, what she's seen so far and what's coming up further down the trail, plus the joys and challenges of hiking with little ones. This family-friendly event will include: an inspiring talk by Jen with plenty of time for questions about the MST and hiking delicious refreshments a song or two by Brew, Jen's talented singer-songwriter husband lots of door prizes donated by presenting sponsor Mast General Store and other donors to MST 40th Anniversary Fund a beautiful setting at Highland Brewing Admission to the event is free with a donation to the Friends of the MST. Jen is encouraging everyone who loves the outdoors and North Carolina to support the trail with a meaningful gift. The work of Friends - to build and protect the MST and help people hike it - is dependent on donations from individuals and companies who see the value of the trail in their own lives and communities.  Jen has come up with some fun suggestions for donation levels.  Gifts over $35 will include a one-year membership to the Friends of the MST: $35 - A Charley-Mile Gift - the number of miles Jen's 4-year-old daughter will hike on the MST  $135 - A Gus-Mile Gift  - the number of miles Jen's 8-month-old son will be carried down the trail by his momma  $1175 - A Jen-Mile Gift - the distance Jen will hike on the MST  $2500 - A Brew-Mile Gift - the distance Brew will drive to make this all possible  We hope you can join us for this fun, inspirational night, celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the MST and Jen's hike across our great state.

For the French aristocrat in all of us, this rough-cut, crown-emerald of a race sweeps participants through a mystical journey, back to a time, when the estate might have resembled an 15th century countryside plantation, complete with a game-stocked forest, working vineyards, and a cold mountain river rushing by. Racers on this day will be lords of the land they claim under fast plowing feet & spokes. The Asheville off-road series of multi-sport events at Biltmore Estate consists of 3 main events, each come with various privileges for participation

Please arrive 5-10 minutes early. We will meet in the parking lot and enjoy a brief walking meditation through the beautiful botanical gardens before flowing through 75 minutes of traditional Hatha yoga in a secluded, flat grassy area surrounded by trees. These classes are held rain or shine as there is a covered cabin porch area where we can practice if it is raining or if the ground is too muddy.  Afterwards: You are free to head back to the parking lot and leave or stay and explore more of the gardens. A significant portion of every class goes directly to the Botanical Gardens at Asheville, a non-profit that relies completely on volunteers, donations and memberships.   Positive physiological and mental benefits of both yoga and reconnecting with nature have been reported including reduction of pain, stress and inflammation as well as better sleep. In the event of cancellation due to weather, you will be issued a refund.
