About This Activity

NCDOT Invites You to Participate in the “485 Madd Dash”
Bring the family out for a 5K, 10K, Fun Bike Ride to benefit Mothers Against Drunk Driving
CHARLOTTE – In July 1988, the N.C. Department of Transportation started building the I-485 Outer Loop around Charlotte. By the end of 2014, the final segment of this 67-mile highway will be complete, closing the loop around North Carolina’s largest city. 
To commemorate the completion of this long-awaited milestone, NCDOT is partnering with the State Employees Combined Campaign to organize the “485 Madd Dash” at 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 2. 
Participants will be able to run on the final segment of I-485 before it opens to traffic. The 5k/10k/Fun Run will start at 12940 Loganville Road. 10k runners will be able to traverse the new turbine interchange at I-485 and I-85, a new connection to the final section of The Loop.
The Fun Ride is a non-competive bike ride along the entire course, that will be held after the race for $5 (no prior registration is required - cash and check only!)

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to run, walk or bike on I-485 before you can drive on it!

Proceeds from the 485 Madd Dash to benefit Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).
