The Elizabeth 8K Road Race is Charlotte's oldest road race and features a USATF-certified course and a fantastic tour of the scenic residential streets of the Elizabeth neighborhood . The event also includes a timed 1.5M run/walk and the Liz Kids' Fun Run for the little ones.
Participants will enjoy technical t-shirts, post-race refreshments, live music, and our very own Elvis, a.k.a., The Big E! Proceeds benefit the beautification of the Historic Elizabeth Neighborhood and the replenishing of both Elizabeth and Charlotte's tree canopies.
