The 2021 Westerwood 5k is back with a NEW Middle Mile Challenge!
We’re excited for the 3rd annual Westerwood 5k. The 5k course rolls through the historic Westerwood neighborhood streets and part of the greenway along Buffalo Creek. New for 2021, we have added the Middle Mile Challenge, which is a timed one mile segment from mile 1 to 2 of the 3.1 mile course. The middle mile challenge starts and finishes at the the iconic Fairmont Avenue bridge, with plenty of hills in between.
You have two great race options for 2021:
1) Westerwood 5k with Middle Mile Challenge: Those interested in competing for overall, age group, and team awards must run or walk with a bib on the Westerwood 5k course on November 7, 2021
2) 5k – Race Anywhere: Those who are out of town can opt for the virtual race, where you can participate from anywhere! To receive your t-shirt and bib, a mailed packet option is available for a small fee.
The Westerwood 5k is a fundraiser for two well known local charities. Greensboro Urban Ministry offers food, shelter and solutions to those in need. Backpack Beginnings offers solutions to feed, comfort and cloth children in need. We encourage you to support these charitable organizations as you register for this year’s race.
