The 2013 Elizabeth 8K Road Race was held on
Saturday, April 20, 2013.
Thank you to all of our participants, volunteers, partners and sponsors.
The Elizabeth 8K shares in the sadness and shock that have come from the
tragedy in Boston, particularly for the injuries sustained by local
athletes Nicole and Michael Gross. This Saturday, we will come together and unite as runners,
walkers, volunteers and spectators for the 27th Annual Elizabeth 8K and
in doing so, show our support for Nicole, Michael and all those injured
or killed in this tragic event.
The 2013 Elizabeth 8K Road Race, presented by Presbyterian Orthopaedic Hospital, Harris Teeter and Hawthorne's NY Pizza and Bar, will take place on April 20, 2013. This is the 27th annual edition, making it the oldest 8K race in Charlotte. Participants enjoy technical t-shirts (while supplies last), post-race refreshments and beer, live music from School of Rock, and even our very own Elvis! Proceeds benefit the beautification of the Historic Elizabeth Neighborhood and the replenishing of Elizabeth's tree canopy.
