North Carolina > Dowd Y Run Half Marathon & 5K
Charlotte, NC



Saturday, October 22, 2011

Event Details

Organized by the YMCA of Greater Charlotte and sponsored by the North Carolina-based American Community Bank, the Dowd Y Run Half Marathon & 5K takes runners on an out-and-back course through the streets of the state's largest city, known for its abundant trees even throughout its hilly downtown areas.

Held each fall as a fundraiser for the YMCA's community outreach programs -- which include job training, summer camps for children and mentorship programs for local teens -- the race drew more than 1,000 runners for its fall 2008 running, with an estimated 700 runners in the half marathon and more than 300 runners in the 5K, which takes participants on an out-and-back route through Charlotte's historic Dilworth neighborhood and commercial district, nestled in the southern central portion of the city.

Race Weather & Climate

Located near the state's southern border with South Carolina, at about the midpoint of North Carolina, the city of Charlotte typically experiences cool to mild weather conditions in the mid-fall season, and relatively even precipitation throughout the season (and most of the year). In October, the city's average monthly temperatures range between 73°F and 51°F, while precipitation amounts average just over 3.6 inches for the month.
