Our Story ~ Meet the Race Event Team

Kick It Events Management is a small family owned business producing outstanding events in Asheville and the surrounding area. Our company launched in 2014, but our journey of becoming running event production coordinators begins much earlier.

Originally we donated our time as volunteer race directors for the Thomas Wolfe 8k and the Hot Chocolate 10k (now the Hot Chocolate Races) from 2006 to 2013.  After many requests for help with other events we launched our business and became professional event producers.
