PermaTrak in Action: Charlotte 10 Miler and 4 Mile Run [PHOTOS]

See other great resources on: Boardwalk Design, News

We love to see our concrete boardwalks being enjoyed by the community! On February 2, 2019, the Charlotte 10 Miler and 4 Mile Run took place in Charlotte, NC, with almost 1000 runners participating. The course for both races used the McAlpine Creek Greenway, which features two PermaTrak boardwalks.

The boardwalks at McAlpine Creek were the first PermaTrak projects in Charlotte, and were part of the repair solution to a truss bridge crossing over McAlpine Creek that was initially installed too low. By elevating the new crossing five feet, stream capacity was increased and debris was allowed to flow freely beneath the boardwalk.

Enjoy the photos from the race below - we even captured our President, Jason Philbin, on the trail!
