Fool’s Gold 13.1 Miler
This half marathon around the streets of the Queen City is a homage to the city’s rich history during the gold rush in the early 1800’s. The course resembles a pot of gold overspilling into the newly formed Gold District just south of Uptown. Runners will have the opportunity to see I-277 from both directions as they’ll loop around and go “with traffic” after running against it for the first 4 miles. All participants who finish this inaugural 13.1 miles on Charlotte’s inner beltway will receive a 13 karat medal at 2.77 inches in diameter roughly valued at $704 each.
