This will be a 3k(walking), 5k and 10k running road race through historic areas of Statesville. The course will go through Christmas lights and carolers cheering the runners on. There will be a custom contest before the race.  We have some very strong costumes, so come to impress.

The mission of the RUNNING OF THE ELVES 5K/10K is to become a catalyst of hope in the lives of local families and in the activities of charitable organizations who have financial needs. Beginning with the 2016 race and going forward, the profit from each race will be donated to a local family or charitable organization in our community.

This year we are very proud to be donating the proceeds from the event to the Stephanie Kastor Chapman Memorial Scholarship. If you have any questions please email us at
