Greensboro Distilling Speakeasy 5K

About

We will be working closely with the city to implement all necessary Covid measures to have a safe in-person event.  Modifications may include removal of post race activities, wave starts, and modified courses.  We cannot predict what July will look like in terms of the current pandemic, but we are committed to doing everything we can to host a live event.  Please make sure you are aware of our refund policy (found both on the registration page and under our rules page) prior to signing up.  We hope to see everyone in July!

Our Speakeasy 5K is an amazing opportunity to run a race midsummer while avoiding the heat!  This race takes place after dark and is always a fan favorite!  The out and back course is well lit and very enjoyable (especially without the sun beating down on your run)!  After the race, we welcome you to join us at our very own speakeasy featuring live jazz music and cocktails made with the award-winning alcohol from Fainting Goat Spirits!

This race is part of The Triad Mega Medal Series.  In 2021 the speakeasy 5K will act as race #4 in the Mega Medal Series.
