While the its title doesn't exactly roll off the tongue like previous years' "Town Day 5k", this Saturday's Davidson-Cornelius Day Care Center Town Day 5k and Family Fun Run is a classic small-town race held in conjunction with the Town of Davidson's Festival. Fun for the whole family both pre- and post-race.
The course winds through much of historic downtown and residential Davidson and is generally characterized by a gentle downhill start on South St. near CVS, some uphills in the middle at The Pines, and a flattish last half-mile on Lorimer Road. Below is an unofficial route taken from my trusty Garmin Forerunner 205.
The one-mile run run begins at 8:00am with the 5k starting at 8:30. For complete information go to their informational site.
