U.S. Forest Service Special Uses Permit Holder
Permit Holder Statement of Non-Discrimination
Brevard Distance Running Camp and all of its programs hold a Forest Service Special Use Permit to operate on national forest lands including Pisgah, Nantahala, Sumter, and Cheoah National Forests. Permits are issued for recreation uses that serve the public, promote health and safety, and protect the environment. These permits are required for any commercial use on these lands.
A Special Use Permit grants rights or privileges of occupancy and uses to the holder. Examples include reserving a public site for a wedding party or holding a bicycle race on public lands. These permits contain specific terms and conditions that the holder must follow.
Before Special Use Permits are issued, the Forest Service must determine that the proposed use complies with all management plans and laws, that there is a demonstrated need for the activity, and that the use is appropriate on national forest system lands. Special Use Permits are a temporary authority.
