The Run for Peace has been a part of the Charlotte community for 21 years. Founded by Tim Reilly, it began as a 10-mile race winding through the curves and hills of South Park. The Run for Peace later became a marathon and connected the campuses of Davidson College & Queens College. As the reputation of the event evolved, the Run for Peace hosted Charlotte’s premier marathon event that took place in perfect January conditions and journeyed to our very own uptown.

Today, we are proud to provide our region with a challenge like no other in the area. Our participants will take their skills off-road and onto the trail. While the landscapes and distances of our race have changed, our road ahead is always clear:

“Peace begins at home.”
