Did you know that Charlotte is nicknamed the Hornet's Nest? "In 1780, General Cornwallis marched the British army into Charlotte. The city of Charlotte strongly resisted the British Crown. Legend has it, because the local patriots fought so hard against General Cornwallis's people, he called Charlotte a “Hornet's Nest of Rebellion” as he and his army fled." ~Charlotte Observer, September 16, 2017, "6 historical fun facts every Charlotte resident should know"
Parking for the race will be held at Olde Providence Elementary School. The 5k and Fun Run will START AND FINISH at the Windyrush Country Club pool which is about a half mile from the elementary school parking lot. We will have a bag drop where you can store your belongings during the race.
