ALL proceeds of the Legacy Run benefit Inheritance of Hope, a charity that serves young families facing the loss of a terminally ill parent. Your run or walk will make a lasting legacy possible for families in the endurance challenge of navigating terminal illness. Watch how we inspire hope:
Fundraising is completely optional for the Legacy Run, but it does increase the event's impact. If you're interested, you can easily create a personal fundraising page. All gifts made toward your page are tax-deductible donations to Inheritance of Hope, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity. Since all proceeds will benefit the young families facing the loss of a terminally ill parent that Inheritance of Hope serves, we encourage you to help us inspire hope!
This handy fundraising guide will help you make the most of your personalized, mobile-friendly page. Even if you don't want to run or walk at all, you can register for a free fundraising page and help build lasting legacies!
Both courses will start and finish near 123 East Main Street, Brevard, North Carolina. The Half Marathon course provides scenic views of the beautiful western NC mountains as the course winds through the Transylvania County countryside before returning to the city limits. The 5K course provides a mix of hills and flat terrain allowing participants to experience the city of Brevard.
You can see maps and turn-by-turn directions, along with pacing information:
There are six water stations on the half marathon course and bottled water waiting for every finisher as well. The water stations will be set up at approximately 2.5 miles, 4.5 miles, 7 miles, 9 miles, 10 miles, and 11.5 miles. Oranges, Gatorade, and water will be available at every station. Gu gel will be available at 4.5 and 9 miles, and port-a-johns will be near those stations as well. 5k participants will also use the last water station, which is located slightly over 2 miles into the 5k.
Course Safety and First Aid
For your safety, please remain in the right lane for the duration of the course. Do not switch lanes or run/walk in the middle of the road. PLEASE use caution and be alert for traffic. If you need medical assistance while on the course, reach out to one of our many course volunteers or water station attendants to reach the EMS crew that will be assisting us. If you are at the main event area, a first aid station will be located at the volunteer tent, which will be to the left of the Water Oaks building (when you are facing it from the street).
