About This Activity

We are excited to announce the second annual Resolution Run 5K that will be held in downtown Marion, NC on New Year’s Eve (December 31, 2017.) The Resolution Run is the kick off event for the New Year's Eve Celebration that will be held on Main Street in downtown Marion. The course for the 5K will travel throughout downtown. To make this event unique, this 5k will feature a different route from other 5K's in Marion.

All 5K participants will receive a long sleeved t-shirt with the event logo and a sparkly finisher medal.

 The Resolution Run will start at 8:30pm at the new event stage on Main Street. This event will be a night time run/walk event so participants are encouraged to wear reflective gear, glowing accessories, or even bring a headlamp or flashlight. We also would love to see you dressed in your New Year’s gear. There is a costume contest during the New Year's Eve Celebration if you would like to enter into that contest.

This event will not be timed; however there will be a clock displayed at the finish line so you can look at your time as you finish. We will have prizes for the overall top 3 females and overall top 3 males. We will not have age group awards.

 This will be fun, family and friends event that is to encourage everyone to come out to have a great time and possibly even start a New Year’s Resolution with a healthier lifestyle OR just come out and have a blast walking or running our beautiful streets of downtown Marion under the lights.

 Once you finish the 5K, stay and enjoy the Downtown New Year’s Eve Celebration on Main Street. This event will begin at 9pm and run until the new year at midnight. The Celebration Event will have music, craft and food vendors, a horse and carriage ride, local shops will be open, a brand new golden nugget that will drop into a 10 foot GIANT Mr. Bob’s Donut at Midnight. Be sure to come so you can get a slice of that!

The cost for the Resolution Run 5K event is $30 per person. This covers your race entry, shirt, and finisher medal. Entry into the New Year’s Eve Celebration is FREE.

 Packet up for the 5K will be on Sunday December 31 (New Year's Eve) from 7:30pm-8:30pm at the gazebo area on Main Street.

This race is capped at 100 participates to ensure that all participants receive a shirt and finisher medal. Register soon! We will contiue with registration until we sell out.

 Proceeds from this event will go to the McDowell Ministries.

 If you are interested in volunteering please contact Morgan Pittman at All volunteers will receive a free event t-shirt.
