Eggnog Jog 5K
The Eggnog Jog 5K kick starts the holiday season by sending runners, walkers, and entire families galloping around the track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. More than three million Christmas lights illuminate the course, with some creating tunnels and others blinking to the sounds of holiday music. Rather than driving a sleigh to the event, 5K participants can celebrate the season by dressing up in costume or donning their favorite sweater for the evening. Once everyone has crossed the finish line, the festivities carry on with a post-race concert from Charlotte rockers, Charity Case, during which food and alcohol will be available for purchase.
