5K Color Run by Relay for Life UNC

Mon November 30 - Mon December 7 Chapel Hill, NC 27516 US

Relay for Life of UNC is hosting our fourth annual 5k Color Run, and first virtual run! The race will be run the week of November 30th to December 7th, 2020. All profits received from this race will go directly toward cancer research through the American Cancer Society, of which approximately $9 million is annually returned to UNC hospitals. The race can be run from anywhere, and so we are hopeful that the flexibility in both time and location will make the race more accessible to all!  

Registration is $10, and includes a white t-shirt and a virtual bib which you can print out at home to show off for who you are racing. We have a limited stock of this year's shirt, but if we are out when you sign up you will get one from a previous year. Contactless packet pick-up will take place in Chapel Hill at He’s Not Here on November 19th, starting at 4 pm. If there is bad weather, it will be pushed to the 20th.

However, if you are not in the Chapel Hill area, there is a $15 Registration that includes your t-shirt being shipped to you!  

In lieu of the normal “color run,” we encourage all participants to post a colorful picture to Instagram on their race day and tag @relayforlifeunc to be entered into three raffles throughout the week. On the last day of the race, we will post our top 3 favorite pictures to be voted on to win the grand prize.


Anyway Anytime during Nov. 30 - Dec. 7
