Mallard Creek Greenway Run


Ready to start some summer training? Looking to overcome the humidity and sweat with other runners? Come join us at our next Mallard Creek Greenway Run on Saturday, June 8th at 7:00 a.m.

Please plan to arrive 5-10 minutes early, as announcements will precede the run so we can launch as close to 7:00am as possible.

The starting point for this run is at Mallard Creek Elementary School, located at 9801 Mallard Creek Rd, Charlotte, NC 28262. The school's parking lot offers direct access to the greenway and even has a porta-john available if needed. For additional parking, there are shopping centers within a convenient 0.6-mile walking distance.

You won't need to worry about how to stay hydrated, as we will have water stations both at the starting/finishing area and along the greenway by the crossway with David Taylor Drive.

To plan your run or walk, we have provided maps with turnaround points for distances of 5K, 6 miles, or 13.1 miles on our website. Simply follow the link below to explore these routes and prepare for your run:

LSC GREENWAY RUN - JUNE 22

The next edition of the Charlotte Running Club's Little Sugar Creek Greenway Run is scheduled for Saturday June 22nd, starting at 7:00 am.

Location: 2524 Tyvola Road, Charlotte, NC 28210

For those who haven't participated in our monthly run on this stunning greenway, it stretches southward from Tyvola Road to the Polk Historic Site, covering nearly 7 miles. Furthermore, the recent extension to Pineville Lake Park and beyond is now open, offering additional mileage options. There's no predefined distance for this run, as you can turn around at any point along the route.

We'll gather at the parking lot situated off Tyvola Rd (address provided above) and commence the run shortly after 7:00 am. We recommend arriving early to secure a parking spot. There's ample additional parking available across Tyvola at the Queens University Sports Complex. 

Throughout the greenway, there will be water stations, and you can also find water at the starting and finishing points. At the 8-mile mark, Pineville Lake Park offers restrooms and water fountains.

While we would love to guarantee that all runners will find a pace group that suits them, please feel free to bring a running buddy along.

Our mission: Building a Strong and Healthy Community Through Running

The Charlotte Running Club consists of passionate runners that strive to spread the love of running and to help each other grow. The Club's goal is to bring the expansive, diverse, and exciting Charlotte running community together under one umbrella through motivation, group runs, and social events. 

Our club represents an incredibly diverse population, from lifelong competitive runners to couch-to-5k-ers and everyone in between. We all found running for different reasons and at different times in our lives, but we all now share a collective interest in making Charlotte a better place to run. Over the coming months and years, CRC is committed to helping to drive that transformation by connecting our members to:

  • Running Opportunities. From fun runs to workouts to races, we help connect runners to events and activities for runners of all ages and abilities.
  • Social Opportunities. You can't run all the time, so we provide fun and engaging opportunities for runners to socialize away from roads, tracks, and trails.
  • Community Involvement. Whether we're volunteering at a local park, coaching and mentoring with community running organizations, or advocating for runner safety, we strive to help make Charlotte a better place to run.
