Dear Traveler,
While it’s too early to say whether the start of March will require a lion tamer or a shepherd, it is definitely true that we’re excited about the possibility of spring. These mild weekends just before things start to green up are a great excuse to wander around Brevard and Transylvania County and check out all the cool things going on. Whether you’re into food, music, art, adventure, or some delicious combination, you’ll be lucky to find yourself up in our mountain town this March. It’s all happening, and you can be a part of it. Come spring into the season with us.
See you on the trail,
The Adventurist

With spring just a few weeks away, why not hit the ground running on this fun, family-friendly, four-mile race? Then, finish up with free beverages, t-shirts, and friends to cheer you over the line. And if that doesn’t put a little spring in your step, consider this: proceeds will be sponsoring the youth running programs from Brevard Elementary School, Pisgah Forest Elementary School and the Cindy Platt Boys and Girls Club.
