Fall Back 5K


The inaugural Fall Back 5K is a new and exciting run event in the City of Kannapolis which starts and ends on the beautiful NC Research Campus. This is the 7 of 8 races in the 2017 Run Kannapolis race series. The run will start at 1:50 AM on November 5th. (Run will take place during the time change.)

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Kannapolis Firefighters' Burned Children's Fund and Kannapolis Fire Department Explorer Post 001.
