Runner's World: The 50 Best Running Cities

By: Ali Nolan

Welcome to the Queen City, a place filled with healthy professionals who enjoy 14 running stores, nine running clubs, and dozens of races. Runners in this city do not take their resources for granted. For instance, the Charlotte Running Club hosts Le Tour de Charlotte—a program that gets its members into the specialty running shops so they can explore and buy local. For a great run, head to the Little Sugar Creek Greenway.
