5K and 8K Run – 7:45 a.m.
Enjoy a great run around downtown Kannapolis. Both the 5K and 8K run will start at the N.C. Research Campus and travel around the 8th Street greenway. The path through the greenway is covered by a canopy of trees and provides runners a peaceful atmosphere with beautiful scenery. The trail is primarily flat, so come to run fast or enjoy an easy pace while being surrounded by nature. After the run, plan to stay for a post-race brunch and learn more about the N.C. Research Campus.
Duathlon – 9:00 a.m.
Want to challenge yourself and become a multi-sport athlete? This race is perfect for the novice and elite athlete that wants to try something a little different. The first run is 5K in length and utilizes the beautiful 8th Street greenway. The athletes will then grab their bikes and ride around a 25K loop on the country roads that circle the city of Kannapolis. During the last transition, the running shoes are once again slipped on for a short 3K run to the finish line. Plan to stay after the duathlon for a post-race meal and learn more about the N.C. Research Campus.
