2020 NC DNA Day 5K is Cancelled

Due to COVID-19 the NC DNA Day 5K has been cancelled. This race will not be run for 2020 but we hope to be back in 2021!

Here Are Your Options:

The NC DNA Day 5K is the main fundraiser for science outreach opportunities including NC DNA Day. We try to keep our race costs as low as possible so most of the registration money goes towards these opportunities.  By letting us keep your registration fee as a donation, you will be helping NC DNA Day and other outreach opportunities continue to take place.  We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand and will be happy to refund your registration. We hope you can join us for the next NC DNA Day 5k.

The NC DNA Day 5K is an annual run to support science education in North Carolina. Specifically, funds raised from this event will support North Carolina DNA Day – an annual event that connects NC scientists with high school classrooms across the state to inspire and educate the next generation of scientists, to support North Carolina science teachers, and to bridge the gap between North Carolina’s leading research enterprises and high school science classrooms.  NC DNA Day sends over 150 scientists into high schools each year, and since 2010 has reached over 75,000 students statewide! The run takes place on the beautiful campus of UNC Chapel Hill.
