Firefly 5K Run/Walk

July 1 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Main Street Elizabethton invites you to participate in the second annual Firefly 5K Run/Walk on Friday, July 1 at 8 PM!

Participants can run or walk throughout Downtown Elizabethton to support downtown revitalization. The Firefly 5K will take place during First Friday Celebrations, where live music will be performed at Covered Bridge Park from 7-9 PM (sponsored by Carter County Bank). Participants can enjoy the tunes at pre-race check-in and at the finish line after running/walking through the Historic Covered Bridge.

Proceeds support Main Street Elizabethton in the organization’s transformational strategies to grow downtown into a vibrant shopping, dining, and entertainment district, as well as elevate the natural resources to become a family-friendly mountain recreation hub. Main Street Elizabethton’s mission is to look toward the future with the goal to preserve our culture and heritage while striving to revitalize the heart of our downtown. Sponsorship opportunities can be made available upon request to Main Street Elizabethton.

Registration is open:

Early-bird registration is $25 until June 3. Registration increases to $30 on June 4. Registration will also be available at race check-in. T-Shirts and medals are guaranteed for the first 400 participants.

The Firefly 5K is a pet-friendly walk/run. Friendly dogs on leashes are welcome. Strollers and headphones are also permitted throughout the course. All are invited to participate. The Firefly 5K Run/Walk will take place in conjunction with July First Friday Celebrations and will feature community activities, extended shopping, live music, local eateries, and so much more!
