An event for all of North Carolina. The area's most popular running event keeps getting bigger, and keeps getting better! The 5k curves through the historic downtown neighborhoods of Aberdeen, NC with rolling hills and wide turns. The 12ks of Christmas incorporates the 5k route along with a scenic tour of Bethesda, and the Malcolm Blue Farm.
