Dear participants of Lucky Charm Harrisburg,

We regret to inform you that we have been mandated by state and local health officials that we cannot host our live race.

We will however, have a virtual race. This means you can still receive your bib, shirt and medal and run a 5k or 10k on your own, at any location. 

We will be offering prizes for those taking the best selfies with your shirt, bib, and or medal by tagging @luckycharmhbg on Instagram. Entries can be submitted between March 18 and March 22, 2020. We will announce winners on March 23.

For added convenience, we will be offering packet pick up at Fleet Feet Mechanicsburg during additional times scheduled here:
Wednesday, March 18 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Thursday, March 19 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Race discounts will be valid during packet pick up and until the end of March. Sale coupons will be emailed to participants.

As per the mission of our race, we will still give a generous donation to Capital Area Girls on the Run and Downtown Improvement District. There will not be refunds or mailed packets.

We thank you for your understanding during this difficult time for all of us. 

Have a great run!
