What could runners do at a time like this? Run more, show our love, stand united, and give generously.

This is a joint effort of CRC, Davidson Timing, and Vac and Dash to put on a fixed time event to encourage everyone to come. You have 2.62 hours to run whatever distance you like.

The event is hosted by the Charlotte Runners as a special edition of their weekly Sunday Long Run (SLR).

About the event
This is a casual, non-competitive event to benefit Nicole and Michael Gross and Erika Brannock, who were injured in the devastating bombings during this year’s Boston marathon. This article has more information. The donations will go to a fund benefitting the family set up by Nicole Beverage and Charlotte Athletic Club.
