The Kiwanis Weaverville Firecracker 5k has a new course this year and will start and finish at North Buncombe High School. This is the Firecracker 5k I’m running (there is no shortage of Firecracker 5k’s to run). The course is rolling, paved country roads. That’s a big change from running through downtown Weaverville where the race has been run in the past. It’s tough to compare your results this year to the past.
