So here is our new (revised/revised/revised) plans

We are definitely not letting the Virus win and are adding an additional, though we are bowing to sensible virtual rules.


During October

Saturday, October 31 – Flight of the Vampire – everyone will be really fed up by then and this will probably be an amazing number of people.

All the courses start and finish at the New Depot in downtown Brevard on Railroad Ave.

The new courses treat the 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.


Costs vary for each race; Other special group rates and Veteran rates on RunSignup
