We are closely monitoring the air quality conditions in Charlotte. We will post any changes here but at this time the Let Me Run FallFest 5k is scheduled to take place as planned.

Join us for the
Let Me Run FallFest 5k on
November 19, 2016!

This race will be held at Whitehall Business Park (3600 Arco Drive, Charlotte, NC 28272) at 9:00 AM. It is a morning race benefiting Let Me Run, a program that inspires boys through the power of running to be courageous enough to be themselves, to build healthy relationships, and to live an active lifestyle.

This event is part of the 2016 Carolinas HealthCare System’s employee race program.

Let Me Run welcomes Marko Blazveski as our Grand Marshal!

Originally from Skopje, Macedonia, Marko moved to Monterey, California as a 15-year-old to train with the Monterey Bay Swim Club and pursue a collegiate swimming career. The move and his hard work paid off. Marko was recruited by Wingate University, in North Carolina, where he made an immediate impact as a freshman and continued to do so throughout his four years in the NCAA Division II. In the 2012 Olympics, Marko competed in the 400 individual medley and was selected by the Macedonian confederation to bear his home country's flag in the opening ceremonies. He graduated from Wingate in May 2014 with a B.S. in Finance.
