Charity Chase Half Marathon is an rewarding run for those up for the challenge.  Hickory is in the foothills of North Carolina and the race course winds around the city with elevation changes that will require some effort, you'll have run up and down the equivalent of a sixty-story building before you finish.  But don't be scared off!  We have participants that run/walk and runners as young as seven and as old as seventy.  There is something even more exciting about this race!

We now offer runners, who don't want to run a whole half marathon, a new option.  The first loop of our course is just over a 10K at about 6.5 miles.  We call this run Charity Chase Lite and we encourage new runners to sign up and become regular participants in the annual Charity Chase event.

Our Charity volunteer groups help make Charity Chase Half Marathon run smoothly.  There will be over 300 volunteers at the start/finish and along the race course to cheer you on, provide water, Gatorade & GU.  They may even entertain you along the way!  Hickory's Police Department will be at every controlled intersection and our EMS will be on standby along the course for your safety.
