Thank you in advance for your understanding. Based on recommendations from the NC Department of Public Health and Governor Roy Cooper's office, the Famous Toastery Shamrock 4-Miler WILL NOT be taking place this weekend. We feel that this is the correct decision as the health and safety of our runners, fans, and friends, is always our first priority. 
As this story continues to develop, we appreciate your patience as we manage these unique circumstances. Stay tuned, stay hydrated, and keep those hands washed. 
Check us out on FB and IG Friday. We'll be sharing details on our virtual Shamrock 4-Miler!

Want to be a Virtual Runner?

Hey Runners – Did you know Run Events now offers a Virtual Runner option! Want to support the cause but out of town on race day?  Well, we still want you to be included! Here’s how it works:

If you know you absolutely can’t make it but want to sign up anyway, you can still get that tee shirt and finisher’s medal. 

Once your registration has been switched to the Virtual Option, simply run the same distance as the chosen race during the week leading up to race day. Ex: Yiasou Greek Fest 5K is Saturday, 8/1, therefore, you have from Saturday, 7/25 - Friday, 7/31 to complete your virtual entry. Share on social media and email registration@runcharlotte.com the workout from your Garmin or another running app by noon on Thursday to guarantee your shirt and medal. You will not be eligible for awards or an official time. We'll confirm your workout has been received then the week after the race on Thursday afternoon your shirt & medal will be delivered to the Run For Your Life location that you chose to pick up your packet!  It’s that easy! We want you to be included and if you just can’t make it…. Well, now you can!
