The Charlotte Runners have paired The Ultra Running Company to explore one of Charlotte’s premier neighborhoods with 3 & 5 Mile runs every Tuesday evening!
Eastover, Charlotte between Elizabeth & Myers Park is a beautiful, tree lined neighborhood with smoothly paved roads, stately homes and an almost vehicle-free route. In the summer, it is perfect for hot weather training as the roads are blanketed in shade. During the winter months, the relative scarcity of cars makes for safe and enjoyable running - even in the dark!
The 5 mile course is a speedy loop with just enough hills to remind you that this is still Charlotte. The 3 mile course presents easy, rolling streets for runners of all levels. Get there by 6pm & try the 3/5 Challenge: run the 3 mile loop solo or with a small group, then join the main pack of runners ready to go at 6:30PM.
White arrows mark every turn along with "U53" where everyone runs together, "U5" where the long course diverges, and "U3" where the short course runs alone. Every runner is cheered in before the group returns to URC for #FabulousValuelessPrizes.
The store closes at 7:30 (unless there is a special event or product demo night), but the fun continues at the Harris Teeter 2nd floor bar, home to some of the best beer and wine specials in Charlotte!
