About this event

Join us for the 8th Fiddlin' 5k! Enjoy the sweet tunes of local musicians as you run or walk on our beautiful 5k route in Mars Hill, North Carolina. Just north of Asheville, the Fiddlin' 5k is a local favorite and it's easy to understand why. In addition to the lively music, the course starts and finishes on the beautiful Otis Duck Greenway where participants will be treated to spectacular mountain and rural views.

All Fiddlin' 5k funds raised are granted out to Madison County youth-based art programs. Last year, during the height of the pandemic, these funds were particularly important. While students were stuck inside in front of their computers, some of these funds were used to help fuel the Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM). JAM is a fantastic program where youth can learn, play and appreciate appalachian music together and with other youth and local experts. JAM has been extremely important for many youth who have needed a creative outlet during these uncertain times. On top of that, Fiddlin' 5k is proud to have raised funds to help obtain more supplies for the Madison County Middle School music program as well as help provide art supplies for Brush Creek Elementary School.
