Charlotte Covered Bridge Half Marathon
|Description of Event:||Join us for this annual favorite – the Charlotte Covered Bridge Half Marathon. Last year, due to a bridge closing, we re-routed this course resulting in a course that our racers LOVED! This new course will take you through the covered bridge at Charlotte Beach twice and along some beautiful country roads. For those of you who have done the Charlotte Covered Bridges race in the past, you might be happy to hear that this new course in not nearly as hilly as the old route. In fact, we’d consider this to be a pretty fast half marathon course! This race fills in advance EVERY year, so do not hesitate to register if you want to participate in this race. Registration is limited to 300 racers.|
