Distance: 5.1 miles with 3 mile option.
The Hype: Finally, Charlotte's Biggest and Best Running Group has found another way to put 5 on the Booty. We have incorporated the New Sugar Creek Greenway Extension into Charlotte's Infamous Booty Loop. This is a very fun, easy and picturesque course. You will glimpse a shimmering creek, beautiful architecture, sheets of ivy and old world gas lamps. The Towering Skyline finish is inspiring.
Location: Metropolitan (former land of Midtown Mall) Intersection of Charlottetown & Kings. Shops in Area - Trader Joes, Best Buy, Target...
Parking: Tons of it. Two parking garages on corner of Charlottetown & Kings. Two parking lots on Kings (Kings Square & Kings Tower).
Gather Point: We will gather @ Hickory Tavern bandstand and fountain.
The Course: The Start is on the Sugar Creek Greenway in front of Hickory Tavern - Metropolitan. Look for the huge stone water effect and the band-stand. The course runs along the greenway under Morehead; left turn on Edgehill (away from CMC) and climbs to Queens; right on Queens and Climb to Queens and Providence; right on South Queens then straight onto Selwyn; right on West Queens then straight onto South Kings; left on Edgehill (toward CMC) over bridge and right down Greenway Ramp; slide under Morehead and finish strong.
