Around the Crown 10K is a race rooted in Charlotte from every angle and we’re proud to bring the active community together around a city we all love. Year one created a sustainable race with nearly 5,000 runners on the Queen City’s inner beltway while donating $20,000+ to local charities.
We’re excited to head back to the highway for year two with a brand new course and finish festival at First Ward Park! In the first two miles you’ll pass all three uptown Charlotte sports venues, entering I-277 next to the Carolina Panthers stadium. Then it’s onto the highway for 3 miles where you’ll see the Queen City from a new speed while circling the breathtaking skyline. Exiting the highway, you’re onto the final mile through beautiful Fourth Ward before heading back to the finish festival for a family friendly party for all!
