The Charlotte Running Club has three upcoming events covering different types of gatherings, along with a premier event back on the calendar. Join us for a live Zoom meeting with a decorated runner, an in-person run and social “Dash & Dine,” and a fundraiser to benefit our friends and neighbors served by RunningWorks. Details below:
Live conversation with Dean Karnazes previewing his upcoming book, "A Runner's High: My Life in Motion"
- May 4th
- 7 p.m.
- Zoom (live meeting, link will be provided closer to event date)
Dean Karnazes is one of the most decorated ultramarathon runners in the world and his new book details the physical and emotional challenges for somebody in their mid-50s training for the rugged Western States 100-Miler. This live event will give you an opportunity to interact with Dean and learn more about his life and what keeps him going. A copy of the book will be raffled off to a Charlotte Running Club member in attendance.
Dash & Dine Group Run + Dinner
Do you want to go for a run and enjoy a good meal afterwards? Join the Charlotte Running Club for a casual group run open to Charlotte Running Club members and non-members. At 6:45 p.m., there will be a group 5k run followed by dinner on the outdoor patio. A gift card for the restaurant will be raffled off to one of the runners in attendance. We will be following mask and physical distancing requirements in place by the county and the restaurant.
Global Running Day: 12-Hour Run to End Homelessness
RunningWorks uses the structure and routine of running to assist our friends and neighbors experiencing homelessness in the Charlotte community. The Global Running Day event is a major fundraiser for RunningWorks and you are invited to join the Charlotte Running Club team. Registration is free and prizes will be awarded to the top fundraisers and runners who run the most miles during the event's 12 hours.
