NOTE: THIS IS PART OF THE ASHEVILLE TRACK CLUB 2010 GRAND PRIX
This is the second year of the new course for the Kiwanis Weaverville Firecracker 5k. The race starts and finishes at North Buncombe High School. This is one of five Firecracker races to run in Western North Carolina so there’s plenty to choose from. This course is rolling, paved country roads and typically draws a big crowd. It’s been well organized and managed every time I’ve run it (four times).
Here’s the course …
