The Running of the Elves, is a 5k and 10k Race in Downtown Statesville NC.  The race will start at 5pm sharp.  The course is almost flat and goes through historic Downtown Statesville and the neighborhoods surrounding.  Many off the houses will be decorated for Christmas and there will bystanders all along the course to cheer you on.  Each year we have almost 500 runners, so you konw it is a good time.
