With more than 20 miles of woodland trails extending along the Catawba River, the U.S. National Whitewater Center is a destination for runners of all levels. Run at your own pace or compete in one of the races in the Whitewater Race Series, which includes color runs, 5Ks, and the newly created New South Trail Marathon & Half Marathon. After a challenging workout, relax by the water with a beer and watch the rafts go down the rapids.
