  • Earl Scruggs Center (map)

Live music with a banjo tribute will begin at 8 a.m. and will kick off the race at 8:30 a.m. Both the 5K and 10K runs will start and finish at the Don Gibson Theatre located at 318 South Washington Street in historic Uptown Shelby. The certified course takes you through Uptown Shelby and around the historic 1907 courthouse on the beautiful court square–home of the Earl Scruggs Center. The course then passes historic homes on tree-lined streets and features live music at the 5K/10K split and at various points throughout the course and then returns through Uptown Shelby to cross the finish line back at the Don Gibson Theatre with live music and refreshments in the reception area.
