NC Half Marathon™
The NC Half Marathon at the Charlotte Motor Speedway is the most fun running experience in North Carolina! This event is about experiencing the best in racing in the most unique and exclusive of all venues...the Charlotte Motor Speedway...where racing lives.
THE FASTEST MEDAL EVER
All of our half marathon finishers will receive a HUGE medal with spinner and LED headlights! All 5K participants will get a smaller version of this awesome medal!
A COURSE LIKE NO OTHER
Go for the chase in this once-in-a-lifetime half marathon experience. Start right at the Charlotte Motor Speedway start line with the white flag waving in the air, run through the Speedway, towards the Dirt Track, and how about doing the Drag Strip too (that is right this is where you log your fastest mile). But don't stop there, finish at the checkered flag right on pit row, share your racing stories in the garage and bask in your glory in Victory Lane.
A WEEKEND FOR THE RACE FAN!
It is not just about the run, but the whole weekend experience! This event will host packet pick-up and a runners expo on Saturday, March 8, 2014, the day before the half marathon. On Saturday we will also host the Twilight 5K race for those not yet ready for 13.1 miles. But don't stop there....make this a weekend getaway and get to know Concord and all there is to do in the area.
TWILIGHT 5KThe newest addition to the chase is the Twilight 5K! Here's your chance to get acclimated to the track conditions and grab the pole position as you prepare for the main event, the half marathon, on Sunday! The green flag will wave at 6:30 PM on Saturday evening so make sure your pit crew is prepared for an awesome race weekend experience!
NOT JUST ANOTHER RACE T-SHIRT
Our unisex technical tees are not only fit to make you comfortable and dry while racing, but they are also great looking tees that make a fashion statement. Choose to wear it on the day of the race or anytime after that, letting everyone know you ran the ultimate race!
Whether your favorite driver's number is 4, 88 or 24, on race day, your favorite number will be your own with your very own personalized bib number. Although your bib number will be randomly assigned by the timing system, let us know the name you would like us to print on the bib and get your very own personalized bib to get all those fans to call your name from the stands. The deadline to have your bib personalized is 1 month before the event.
