Our 9th Anniversary Celebration @ "The Legiondary Tacky Christmas Sweater Run"

  • The Legion Brewery

    1906 Commonwealth Ave, Charlotte N.C, Charlotte, NC (map)

    35.218388 -80.812965

  • Look for peeps in running clothes in front of the brewery, unless it's freezing cold, then we will be inside!
  • Our crazy little family started back in December 2007, with a Thursday night run at the Common Market - and we ran our first ever Christmas Run the week after!  Last December 2015 we moved our charter Thursday Night Run to Legion Brewery - so we actually have TWO BIRTHDAYS to celebrate, the Charlotte Runners 9th Anniversary and The Legionary Run's 1st Anniversary.   This year we are bringing back the beloved Tacky Christmas Sweater Run - wear your tackiest sweater and, yes, homemade is even tackier!  We have a prize for "Most Tackiest" -and as you can see from some of the pics at our past runs - tacky doesn't always stop at the sweater!

    When/where/what details about the run below pics:

    This is the 4 + mile run legendary route made infamous by countless Charlotte Runners for over a decade – experience that fast first mile downhill… the endless Mecklenburg Ave. "break point".... and nobody ever forgets Nassau Hill... on the climb to "The Top!" 

    We met at 6:30pm in front of the brewery where directions are provided, after the run we gather at The Legion Brewery for fun times and  great local craft beer by the brewery!  All paces are welcomed!

    Location: The Legion Brewery, 1906 Commonwealth Ave, Charlotte N.C in NoDa, smack across the street from The Diamond.

    Parking: Different areas, including beside/behind The Legion Brewery, on Commonwealth, neighboring streets, and various parking lots in the block area and across Pecan (note: some may require a fee). 

    Gather Point: Meet in front of The Legion Brewing.

    The Course: The original Plaza-Midwood route, turn-by-turn-directions for the “Legendary Legion Run” is on the Charlotte Runners Meetup Files page: http://www.meetup.com/CharlotteRunners/files/here:
