The Azalea Classic is a fun, family-friendly event with a race for everyone. Join us for the 1K Fun Run/Walk, the 1 Mile Challenge Run (ages 8-12) or our USAT&F certified 5K.
Our course features rolling hills in a quiet residential neighborhood with all streets closed to traffic. The course features azalea-lined streets, rolling hills, and a couple challenging hills. Finish line at UPES! Live music and entertainers to cheer participants on! Splits called at 1 and 2 miles. Water station at 112 mile mark. Friendly volunteers all around! Great post-race party on school grounds!
We finish up with a DJ at our post-race party.
