Our 5K race sponsor Feetures is helping you put your best feet forward! Feetures will give the first 2,500 5k registrants a free pair of their No Show Tab socks. These socks provide zone-specific compression for added support and comfort, keeping your feet happy.


During registration, you’ll be able to select your sock size (S, M, L, XL). For sizing help, use the Feetures size guide. Socks will be handed out during packet pick up. Color selection is first come first serve.

Will there be photo opportunities during the race?

Yes! We will have multiple “Selfie Stations” at some of the most beautiful locations in Charlotte. Volunteers will be ready to grab your phone, hand you the #RunCharlotte frame, and snap a photo that will be yours that second! We will also have a professional photographer at the finish line to snap your pic with your newest piece of bling from the Queen City.

Is this race open to wheelchair athletes?

Yes! Learn more about specific wheelchair rules and guidelines.

Are strollers allowed?

Yes! You must manage your own safety and the safety of other runners. We do ask that you line up towards the back if you can.
