Race Lineup - Asheville, Western NC and Greenville SC

If you haven’t done so it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll run on the 4th of July Weekend. Since the 4th is on a Sunday, the races are all happening on Saturday, July 3rd. And there’s plenty to choose from including five different 5k races, one 10k and a 1 mile race.

The Weaverville Firecracker 5k is quite popular among many Asheville area runners as is the Brevard Firecracker 5k and 10k. A bit further to the south and west you can enjoy the brand new Columbus NC Firecracker 5k or the Bryson City Firecracker 5k. To mix things up even more, there is the Red White & Blue Shoes 5k held at Furman University just down the road in Greenville, SC. And this one also has a 1 mile race (The Mile on the Mall) and the two races are timed in a manner that will allow you to participate in both if you’d like to.

So look things over, make some choices, sign up, lace ’em up and run!
