We are celebrating our 15th year of the Charity Chase Half Marathon!!!!

The Charity Chase Half Marathon is a 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 and a VIRTUAL option!!!

New for 2021 is the Charity Chase 5k which will take participants through the downtown area of Hickory. 

Also New for 2021 is our Charity Chase Challenge!!! Run both the Charity Chase 5k and Half Marathon! Are you ready for the Challenge?

We are also offering a virtual option for those individuals that do not feel comfortable running in person due to COVID 19.

Charity Chase Challenge participants will begin with the Charity Chase 5k Run at 6:30 AM, run through the finish line, and get ready to start the Charity Chase Half Marathon BEFORE 7:15 AM!  Challenge participants will run the Half Marathon to get their Charity Chase Challenge & Charity Chase Half Marathon Medal!  Charity Chase 5K individual run will start at 6:30 AM along side the challenge participants.  

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.

Runners will be required to wear face coverings at the start line and once they cross the finish line.

Runners will have staggered start times and/or corral placements to encourage social distancing throughout the course.  More details to come.

During packet pickup each participant will be required to complete a COVID questionnaire. If you do not do this at packet pickup you will be required to do it prior to the race. Packet pickup will be located outside due to current COVID-19 restrictions. Each participant will be required to stand in a social distanced line and wear a face covering during this process.  Participants will be allowed to pick up multiple packets, provided each participant will be required to complete the COVID questionnaire prior to starting the event.

Packet Pick Up will be Friday, June 4th from 10am-7pm @ Fleet Feet Hickory
