About This Activity

Saturday, May 14, 2016 

Unique All Women’s Event - Presented by Pridemore Properties. Huntersville Family Fitness & Aquatics Center in conjunction with The American Heart Association brings you The Women’s Red Run/Walk 4K.

Only 1 in 5 women recognize heart disease as their greatest risk for sudden death.  Women of all ages are now dying at a faster rate than men. So, be the one! Join us to run or walk for the 4 who need to know the risk.  Designed to encourage multi-generational participation, this event can help us knock out heart disease as the leading cause of death in women.  Register to run, walk or be a fund raiser now. 
You’ll run or walk the red boa bridge, get a dark chocolate heart at the half way mark to sweeten the finish and receive memorable “swag” to mark your participation in this important event.  Great giveaways to include mani’s, pedi’s, massage, salon services, jewelry, chocolate, wine and more!   T-Shirts are available as soon as you register to help us market this meaningful event.
So, grab your girlfriends, sisters, aunts, mom and grandmother.  You won’t want to miss this event!


Red Run 4k: This is a run/walk loop course that starts & finishes at Huntersville Family Fitness & Aquatics, 11725 Verhoeff Drive, Huntersville, NC  28078. These are open roads with a lead cyclist, course markers with police assistance for temporary road closings at heavy intersections.


This will be a timed event. However, we are more concerned on winning the game of life!
All participants will receive a locally made Red Run commemorative charm. The top finisher in each age group 8-85 will receive an additional one of a kind charm for your accomplishment of finishing first in your age category.  Our hope is you come back year after year to participate and raise awareness and improve upon your individual performance as a sign you’re committed to improving your heart health.


This event is more than a run/walk…We’ll have many fun giveaways for all participants including red boas given out at “Boa Bridge”, dark chocolate hearts at the half way mark, random gift certificates for manicures, massage, pedicures, wine, chocolate, free house cleaning just to name a few. Who wouldn’t want the chance to a little pampering just for walking or running?


The sole purpose of this event is to educate women of their risk of heart disease. It is our hope that you will register for this event and will commit to setting up a fundraising page or make a donation directly to support the American Heart Association’s, Go Red for Women initiative. Look for your link to be sent to you upon completion of online race registration. Awards will also be given to the highest performing fund raisers.  Start raising funds today!
