Local law firm McAngus Goudelock & Courie partners with Go Time and the North Carolina Azalea Festival to put on a one-of-a-kind road mile race that takes place ahead of the North Carolina Azalea Festival Parade. The course is an out and back through a portion of the Parade route on 3rd street starting and finishing in front of the Parade Reviewing Stand of the North Carolina Azalea Festival Parade. From competitive runners to families looking for a little pre-Parade fun, the MGC Parade Mile has something to offer everyone. Lace-up your sneakers and put on your sharpest seersucker suit or prettiest spring dress and join us downtown for a good cause.
MGC selects a different charity for the race to benefit each year. Proceeds from the 2019 race benefited The Harrelson Center. Approximately $15,000 was donated to this cause in 2019.
Purchase your Parade Bleacher tickets with your registration for some after running fun and relaxation.
