The half marathon course is the flattest course a runner will find in the Charlotte area.  It is fast, flat and scenic. The course runs down Brawley School Road toward The Point.  Participants will enjoy scenic views of Lake Norman as they loop through the beautiful landscape before heading down Brawley School Road to the finish line.  This course is definitely PR worthy!!  This run has been a favorite for the Lake Norman area runners for many years. Now, for the first time, Lake Norman runners will have a chance to race on their home turf.

The 5k course is flat and fast! Participants will head south on Brawley School Road before turning at the Lake Norman Tavern for a very fast trip back to the finish line.  This is a great course for a first time 5k runner/walker or for someone who is looking to set a personal record.
