The Brevard Rotary produces three different races each year, each as the opening event for a weekend-long festival (The White Squirrel 5k/10k, The Firecracker 5k/10k and the Flight of the Vampire 5k/10k). I speak from experience when I say the courses are moderately challenging as WNC courses go, they have plenty of variety and lots of friendly spectators.
