A new course and CASH prizes! Yay!
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
This year Brevard Rotary is offering a brand new race course for the 2018 Firecracker 5K and Fun Run, which coincides with the 2018 July Fourth Festival in downtown Brevard, North Carolina. This year, the City of Brevard is celebrating its 150th Anniversary!
For several years the the Firecracker Race has been the kick off event for the July Fourth Festival. Later in the day music, food, dancing, kid fun games, tours, crafts, art and much more fill the cool mountain air in one of the picturesque little towns in western NC.
This year the race will start and finish on West Main Street at its intersection with Oaklawn. The loop race course will go from West Main Street in downtown Brevard to the lumberyard arts district and then down scenic Tinsley Road before returning to the lumberyard arts district and downtown Brevard. The race course has a modest 125 feet of elevation change and features a mix of residential streets, commercial business district and scenic pastures with views of the beautiful surrounding mountains. The fun run is a .75 mile course that does two laps around a square block of historic homes on West Main Street and Probart Street. This is a family friendly event that helps kick off a family friendly street festival in downtown Brevard to celebrate our Independence Day.
