The Hilly Chantilly is a not-so-hilly USATF certified, family friendly, chip timed 5K race that winds through the tree-lined residential streets of the Chantilly neighborhood, one of Charlotte’s oldest center-city neighborhoods (established 1913) nestled between Plaza Midwood and Elizabeth. The course features gentle, rolling hills that meander through the neighborhood – crossing no major thoroughfares – past Chantilly Park, and begins and ends at Chantilly Hall, near the intersection of Shenandoah Ave. and Pecan Ave. The race benefits two Charlotte non-profit, 501(c)(3) organizations: the Chantilly Neighborhood Association, dedicated to working with residents and other center-city neighborhoods on preserving natural beauty in the city with sustainable urban living, and TreesCharlotte. TreesCharlotte will be on hand race-day for a tree giveaway, as well as other educational opportunities.
