Firecracker 5K

Firecracker 5K

Join us in Brevard on Saturday, July 3, 2021 for the Firecracker 5K!

We run at 8 AM - bib and shirt collection is on Friday the 2nd at the DEPOT from 5-6 PM and then from 7.00 AM onwards on Saturday.

We hope to run 200 - slots are filling quickly, as I guess people want to get out in the fresh air.

The Start and finish are at the RAILROAD DEPOT, 390 railroad Ave Brevard NC 28712

Parking is available next to the DEPOT or across the street on Commerce Ave. Please do not park near the Warehouses as these are in active use and you may be towed

Mask wearing will follow CDC guidance - you will not be indoors at any point.

Photographs are free and will be on the web for you.

There are toilets in the DEPOT building and we have two extra portables being delivered, as well.

We will have a table with complimentary masks and hand sanitizer. 

We will have over 20 volunteers out on the course to show you the way around the west of the City. Please thank them. 

You cross a couple of significant roads and we have Fire personnel there to help you cross safely. Thank the fire department as well !

Have a great time –

Firecracker 5k Brevard Rotary


Thank you to everyone that came out and supported the Brevard Rotary Club at the Annual Firecracker 5k. After a year hiatus, due to the pandemic, the race is back. It was great to be back in Brevard, North Carolina racing again. The weather was absolutely perfect for a July race! The new train depot is such a great spot for the start and finish of the race. We loved seeing new and old faces out there today. Congrats to everyone that raced today!

White Squirrel 5K

The White Squirrel and the Firecracker 5k will be combined and held on Saturday, September 5th. 

The White Squirrel Race is the kick-off event for the White Squirrel Festival. After the Race and Fun Run, music, food, dancing, children’s fun games, tours, crafts, art and much more fill the cool mountain air in one of the picturesque towns in western NC. For extra excursions to hiking, mountain biking, swimming, tubing, picnicking, cookouts and more, stop by our local Chamber on Main St. for more info.

The race course starts and finishes in downtown Brevard near the Post Office on West Main Street. The course will treat runners to a mix of historic homes, the railroad arts district, farm land and the scenic beauty of the Sylvan Valley and the surrounding mountains.
