Greetings past participants and newcomers of the Chad Lovette Memorial Trail Run Hosted by Carolina in the Fall! In consideration for the health of our participants we have decided to make this year a virtual fun run/walk. As in the past, all funds raised will go directly to the American Cancer Society. Although we won't be together in person, we are thrilled to continue this annual tradition and look forward to the day that we can reunite on the trail. We now have Facebook and Instagram pages and hope that you will tag us in a photo or video when completing your run/walk.
Registration: Given the nature of this event, the Virtual Trail Run/Walk will be active through September 30th. To receive a T-shirt you will need to register online by September 30th. T-shirts will ship out in mid-October. Shipping charges are included in your race fee. Once you have completed your virtual event on your own time and own course, you have the option to upload your time back to your profile and see how you placed among other participants.
Sponsorship: Our sponsorship level this year is $150 and those who donate at this level will be recognized on the back of the T-shirt's that will ship out around the middle of October. Donations can be made by clicking the blue “Donate” button on the left side of this page.
