The Course

The 5K will begin in front of the Brookhaven Clubhouse at 3001 Stanbury Drive, Matthews, and tour through the rolling hills of Brookhaven, one of Weddington’s most sought-after club neighborhoods. A fun, yet challenging course, the Brookhaven 5K would be great preparation for those training for the Thunder Road half or full marathon in November.

Ask your friends to sponsor you or your team in the Brookhaven Family Run! Jake and thousands like him fighting Duchenne muscular dystrophy need your help. Take a few seconds to set up a personal or team fundraising page which you can easily e-mail to friends and family asking for their support. Even those who cannot attend the race can support the cause by becoming a "spirit runner" and raising funds. You may also sponsor a runner or simply make a donation online.


Fundraising and Runner Awards for the Brookhaven Family Run will be presented during a ceremony following the 5K. (All Kids Dash participants will receive a medal at the end of their event.)
