Did you know heart disease is the #1 killer in The United States? Join the fight on 5.6.17 for the 2st Annual Red Run/Walk 4k & 8K! We have added an 8k this year for the more seasoned runner, and also encourage men, women and youth to all participate. Heart disease impacts more than women. Together with the American Heart Association we want to increase awareness and education in our community.
By participating in the Red Run, YOU can make a difference! Plus, did we mention great swag, awards and random giveaways from local businesses just for participating? This is a fundraising/educational event you won’t want to miss!

Red Run 4k & 8k: This is a run/walk loop course that starts & finishes on Kincey Ave. (between Novant Health and The Reed Building). PARKING Available at the Reed Building ONLY. These are open roads with a lead cyclist, course markers and police assistance for temporary road closings at heavy intersections. This is NOT a certified race course.
