Lewis Creek Covered Bridges 5K/10K & Half Marathon

register_button_event feedback-button download_map
Description of Event: Join us for our classic Covered Bridges Half Marathon. This race began many years ago and after a brief hiatus while the covered bridges were being repaired, was brought back last year. It is an incredibly beautiful course meandering through the Charlotte’s countryside along Lewis Creek, taking you through two historic covered bridges. This race is not for the faint of heart as there are challenging hills along this course.  If it becomes more of a challenge than you are ready for, you’re welcome to walk the hills, just know that there is a 3-hour time limit on the half marathon. We think the beauty on the course is well worth the hills.

Not up for a half marathon quite yet? Choose a 5K or 10K instead. All three races begin and end at the Charlotte Central School. The 5K and 10K racers will run the same course as the half marathon, except that they will turn around and return to the school before reaching the bridges. Again, it’s a beautiful course. Race walkers are welcomed in the 5K division.

There is a 500 person limit for this race.

This race will be professionally photographed by our friends at SkiPix tiny.
