It is with a heavy heart that we deliver the news that Charlotte Racefest Half-Marathon & 10K, scheduled for April 18, 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
It should go without saying but our top priority is always the enjoyment, health and safety of our participants, volunteers, staff, and spectators.  We have been closely monitoring COVID-19 globally and locally.  Our state has issued a recommendation to avoid situations that bring together 50 or more people for a minimum of 8 weeks. We cannot, in good conscience, put you or our community at risk hosting an event designed to bring upwards of 2,000 people together in one event in a month from now.

Unfortunately, there is not an alternate date available in order for us to reschedule.

As a registered participant of the 2020 events we are happy to extend 3 options for you to consider.

Option 1: GO VIRTUAL IN 2020!
Get your run and fun in! Choose the VIRTUAL OPTION for 2020 Charlotte Racefest.   Virtual participants will receive a custom event shirt, custom finishers medal and a big ole celebration including craft beer.  You have until April 18 to transfer your registration to the virtual 2020 option. 

Option 2: DEFER
Defer your registration to the 2021 Charlotte Racefest scheduled for April 10, 2021.

Option 3: TRANSFER
Transfer your registration to another Junction 311 Endurance Sports owned event scheduled between June of 2020 and April of 2021. You will receive the value of what you paid as a credit toward any single race. If you choose this option, please email and note the event you would like to transfer to.  See Junction 311 Endurance Sports owned events here 

BONUS:  On or before April 18, 2020, you will receive instructions by email to obtain a unique code to receive a 50% discount on any 2020 Junction 311 Endurance Sports owned event. 
As is our policy for all of our events, we will not be offering refunds. Junction 311 Endurance Sports is a locally-owned small business that works hard to deliver large scale, great experiences for our runners. Our team's passion and care translate to spending a great amount of time, effort and money to prepare for your event long before you have even clicked the "register now" button.  We hope you understand that we are doing everything we can to abate the losses that this unusual circumstance has created for all of us.  We love to keep you happy and we hope keeping you racing in the near future will do so!

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions. Plus, you will still get a shirt and medal and be able to join in on the big celebration after all this craziness is over. Stay tuned for details!

You will automatically be entered into next year's race to be held on April 10, 2021. No further action is required on your part. However, you will be invited to attend our big Charlotte Racefest Party this summer once this Coronavirus mess is done!
