The Fireman’s Day 5K will be held in Bryson City Saturday, Sept. 4, in conjunction with the 29th annual Fireman’s Day Street Festival.
The 3.1-mile course starts and finishes at the Bryson City Fire Department. It makes a loop out Deep Creek valley and back for a mostly flat course.
The festival includes face painting, craft exhibits, BBQ, fire truck parade and a Miss Flame contest. Kids can even get rides on the fire trucks.
Cost of the race is $15, or $23 with a T-shirt. Proceeds from the race support the Bryson City fire department.
