Stephanie Kastor Chapman Memorial Scholarship

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 announce we will be donating all proceeds from the event to the Stephanie Chapman Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Please help us support this fantastic cause.  

If you have any questions please email us at
The course has been posted in the pictures folder.  The course is flat and goes through Downtown Statesville with all the Christmas lights and decorations.  We will have awards for overall and age groups.  There will also be door prizes  and give-a-ways.  Each entry will get a gift bag with a style shirt and some surprise gifts. 

The race is on December 2nd, 2017 5:00 pm.  The race will be run through downtown Statesville, NC, at night.
