This year's race beneficiery is Partners for Parks. Partners for Parks is a nonprofit, nonpartisan support group that seeks to promote and enhance parks, greenways, open space and recreation in neighborhoods throughout Mecklenburg County and the surrounding region.
The course runs along a crushed gravel and dirt path. Runners will make two loops on the course so family and friends will have multiple opportunities to cheer runners as they pass. The Kid's Fun Run will start at the 8k starting line, make a single loop around the lake, and finish at the 8k finishline.
There will be parking available off of Monroe Road at the Main entrance to McAlpine Park.
