Course Map

The course is the crown jewel of the entire event. Once a year, runners have the opportunity to race on Charlotte's inner beltway, I-277.

5K on, 5K in

This 6.2 mile journey is beautiful from the opening ceremony to your last stride across the finish line. Beginning next to one of the country’s most beautiful ballparks, you jump onto Charlotte’s inner beltway, I-277, within the first mile. While looping around Crown Town on a four lane highway, you’ll view the Southeast’s best skyline from all angles. After 5K up and above the city maze, you now get to dip back into it meandering through the streets of uptown Charlotte. With two miles remaining, you’re headed west through historic Fourth Ward to view corridors of 100-plus-year-old Victorian homes. Your tour of the Queen City ends with a finish festival back where it all started in Romare Bearden Park. Needless to say, this 10K course is unlike any other and an opportunity you do not want to miss.
