The White Squirrel 5K and Fun Run coincides with the White Squirrel Festival in downtown Brevard, North Carolina. Come join us for both events!

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, farmland and the scenic beauty of the Sylvan Valley and the surrounding mountains.

The race begins on West Main Street near the Post Office. The race course is an out and back, with the starting line also serving as the finish line.


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.
