Greensboro Distilling Speakeasy 5K

About

Does the summer heat have you down? Need to wait for the sun to go down to get your run in? We have the perfect race for you! We are teaming up with Greensboro Distilling and other South End businesses to put on this mid summer nighttime road 5K.

Join us at the Greensboro Distilling Co for a nighttime run through downtown Greensboro, live prohibition-era jazz, and cocktails made of grain-to-glass handcrafted spirits.

This event will take place on very smooth, well lit streets around Greensboro. We still require that all athletes have some form of light on them at all times!

Sponsors

Thanks to our sponsors for making this event possible!
