Event Purpose

The purpose of the Beat the Heat 5K is to promote fitness and health, and improve the quality of life for individuals and families.  To strengthen this purpose, two nonprofit Charity Partners will be selected to share in event proceeds.  Selected Charity Partners need to have a direct impact on community health and fitness.  In particular, we are seeking those with a special focus on youth and/or disadvantaged persons.  See the Donate Page for more information regarding this year’s Charity Partners.

Beat the Heat is hosted by the Twin City Track Club.  The Twin City Track Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting running and fitness in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area. Our members are a cross-section of the community, representing runners and walkers of all abilities. Since our founding in 1977, we have used a number of methods to achieve our goals. We have group activities to promote the social aspects of running, we bring in nationally known speakers to educate and inspire, and we assist other organizations with their organized running events. We are Winston-Salem's oldest running club and one of the largest clubs in North Carolina.  Go to the Twin City Track Club website find out more about the benefits of joining Twin City Track Club.
