This is a run/walk event to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Charlotte. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of about 30,000 children and young adults in the United States. The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to find a cure for cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease. All proceeds from this event will go to this charity.
The event will take place along the streets of the Winding Walk community which is on the western border of Cabarrus County (off of Harris Rd, across from Skybrook). The start/finish line is on Skipping Stone Ln which is located just behind the Goddard School.
Early registration for this event is $20. Same day registration starts at 7 am and will cost $30. Runners aged 10 and under will be $10! Timing will be provided by Jack Rabbit Timing. We will have race times and winners announced shortly after the last person finishes.
Event T-shirts will be given to those who register before midnight May 14. There will likely be some extra shirts available on race day for those who register after May 14, but sizes may be limited.
Awards will be given to the male and female first and second place finishers in each age group and the top overall male and female winner of the race. The age groups will be: 14 and under, 15 to 24, 25 to 34, 35 to 44, 45 to 54, 55 to 64 and 65+. All participants will get a medal upon completing the course.
