Greetings past participants and newcomers of the Chad Lovette Memorial Trail Run Hosted by Carolina in the Fall! We are currently planning to hold the run/walk on 10/23 but are carefully evaluating if this will be safe. We will continue to offer the virtual fun run/walk option for those that are not able to make it in person.  As in the past, all funds raised will go directly to the American Cancer Society. 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 October 4th. To receive a T-shirt you will need to register online by October 4th. T-shirts will ship out in early November. 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.


A sponsorship of $150 will qualify you for two trail run shirts. Please email the shirt sizes that you would like to receive. If you donate more than $150 you may be eligible to receive additional shirts.
