The Running of the Elves, is a 5k and 10k Race in Downtown Statesville NC.  The race will start at 5pm sharp.  The course is almost flat and goes through historic Downtown Statesville and the neighborhoods surrounding.  Many off the houses will be decorated for Christmas and there will bystanders all along the course to cheer you on.  Each year we have almost 500 runners, so you konw it is a good time. 
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 have chosen the Todd Burden family as the race’s beneficiary. Todd Burden is the campus pastor at Statesville Christian School and director/founder of InBounds Ministries, Inc. Todd has impacted the lives of students and adults across the United States and abroad throughout his ministry. Todd is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiation for cancer. Please join us as a runner, sponsor or volunteer for the 2016 Running of the Elves race and help us bless a special family in need this holiday season.
Prior to the race we will have a costume contest.  There will be many people who really go all out, you don't want to miss that. 
Please let us know if you have any questions.

All those who would like to compete in the 10k, you will need to finish the 5k in under 35 min.  At the 35 min mark we will close the 10k chute and all runners will be required to cross the finish-line.
