Registration is open NOW for the in-person and virtual 2021 Novant Health Charlotte Marathon, Half Marathon, 5K, and Marathon Relay events. After a virtual only event in 2020, runners will have two ways to participate this year: in-person on Saturday, November 13, or a virtual event run between October 30 – November 13.
“As conditions keep improving, we continue to gain confidence in the opportunity to host a safe and successful in-person event,” said Tim Rhodes, Race Director for the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon. “Giving runners the option to run in-person or virtual gives everyone the chance to be part of the events.”
The excitement surrounding the return to in-person events won’t outweigh the gravity of providing for the safety of the runners, partners, and volunteers. Event staff will be working closely with its healthcare and public safety partners to make sure everyone has a safe, healthy, and rewarding experience.
Participation in all Novant Health Charlotte Marathon events benefits the Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital.
“That these events can celebrate and motivate runners to do their best and create community impact through Hemby Children’s Hospital … that’s the definition of a ‘win-win,’” added Rhodes.
