Historic Cemetery Drop Dead 5K

Saturday, November 6, 2021
Get ready for fall’s most ‘spirited’ event! Join the Historic Elmwood Pinewood Inc. (HEPI) Saturday, November 6, 2021, for the first-ever Historic Cemetery Drop Dead 5K.
The race will take place within the 70+ acres of Charlotte’s Historic Elmwood and Pinewood Cemeteries. Participants will run by the likes of Belk, Ivey, Morrison, Tate, and Blake, just to name a few of the resident luminaries.
The post-race event will include an awards presentation, DJ, food trucks, and guided tours.
All proceeds help support the 501(c)3 nonprofit, Historic Elmwood Pinewood, Inc. (HEPI). Help us support the cemetery’s restoration and preservation while getting some exercise and enjoying some history! Can’t make the race but still want to support? Register as a "Sleep In Supporter" and get the official 2021 race shirt.
