We are celebrating our 15th year of the Charity Chase Half Marathon!!!!
The Charity Chase Half Marathon is an rewarding run for those up for the challenge. Hickory is in the foothills of North Carolina and the race course winds around the city with elevation changes that will require some effort. You’ll have run up and down the equivalent of a sixty-story building before you finish but don’t be scared off! We have participants that run/walk and runners as young as seven and as old as seventy. There is something even more exciting about this race!
We are now offering TWO NEW RACES IN 2020!
New for 2020 is the Charity Chase 5k which will take participants through the downtown area of Hickory and through Lenoir Rhyne University. The 5k will start before the Half Marathon so family members can participate and still have time to cheer each other on!
Also New for 2020 is our Charity Chase Challenge!!! Run both the Charity Chase 5k and Half Marathon! Are you ready for the Challenge?
Charity Chase Challenge participants will begin with the Charity Chase 5k Run at 7:00 AM, run through the finish line, and get ready to start the Charity Chase Half Marathon BEFORE 7:45 AM! Challenge participants will run the Half Marathon to get their Charity Chase Challenge & Charity Chase Half Marathon Medal!
Our Charity volunteer groups help make Charity Chase Half Marathon run smoothly. There will be over 300 volunteers at the start/finish and along the race course to cheer you on, provide water, Gatorade & GU. They may even entertain you along the way! Hickory’s Police Department will be at every controlled intersection and our EMS will be on standby along the course for your safety.
