Participating kids will run 25.2 miles over the 7 weeks leading up to race day. They will then join Charlotte Marathon festivities to run their final program mile on race day and finish out with 26.2 total miles.

 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

Can I participate in just the 1 Mile on race day, rather than the whole program?

  • 1 mile medal at the finish line

Is group sign-up available?

Will there be photos taken 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.
