But it’s not just the course that makes this race so special. We have over 300 dedicated volunteers who will be there every step of the way, providing encouragement, water, Gatorade, and GU energy gels. With the support of Hickory’s Police Department ensuring your safety at every intersection and EMS on standby, you can focus on pushing yourself to the limit and achieving your personal best.

For those seeking a shorter challenge, we also offer the Charity Chase 5K, taking participants through the vibrant downtown area of Hickory. And if you’re worried about getting your race packet, don’t fret! Packet Pick Up will be available the day before at the Hickory Metro Convention Center or on race day at the venue.
