A very popular race that has been around for a long time and showcases one of the great, old Charlotte neighborhoods.
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
This is one of Charlotte’s longest-running events and features a USATF-certified course and a fantastic tour of the scenic residential streets of the Elizabeth neighborhood.
The event also includes a 1.5M untimed run/walk for the casual participants and youth runners and the Liz Kids’ Fun Run for the little ones. Participants will enjoy technical t-shirts (while supplies last), post-race refreshments and beer, live music from School of Rock, and even our very own Elvis!
