29th Annual Elizabeth 8K Road Race

March 21, 2015, 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM

The Elizabeth 8K Road Race, which is presented by Harris Teeter, Hawthorne’s NY Pizza and Bar and Novant Health, will be held on Saturday, March 21, 2015.  This year marks the 29th anniversary of the Elizabeth 8K making it one of Charlotte’s longest-running events.  The race features a USATF-certified course and a fantastic tour of the scenic residential streets of the Elizabeth neighborhood.

The event, which begins at Hawthorne Recreation Center at Independence Park (345 Hawthorne Lane, Charlotte NC, 28204), also includes a 1.5M untimed run/walk for the casual participants and younger runners as well as the Liz Kids’ Fun Run in Independence Park for the little ones.  Post race festivities begin in Independence Park and will be followed by an award ceremony and post-race party at Hawthorne’s.  Proceeds benefit the beautification of the historic Elizabeth neighborhood and the replenishing of both Charlotte and Elizabeth’s tree canopies.
