You’re invited to join us for the 2021 Novant Health Charlotte Marathon events!   Registration is open NOW for the in-person OR virtual 2021 Novant Health Charlotte Marathon, Half Marathon, 5K, and Marathon Relay events. This year, we’ll have TWO WAYS for you to participate. Join us in-person Saturday, November 13 at the starting line in uptown Charlotte, or you may choose to run a virtual event between October 30 – November 13.

Like you, we’re excited for the opportunity to run in-person. As always, the safety and health of our runners, their families, our partners, and volunteers is the highest priority. As we prepare for your event weekend, we’ll be working closely with our healthcare and public safety partners to make sure everyone has a safe, healthy, and rewarding experience.

Your participation continues to benefit the Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital. Since our partnership began in 2014, you’ve helped contribute more than $200,000 toward providing remarkable care to kids from the Carolinas and beyond.

Thank you for your continued support of the Charlotte running community, Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital, and the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon!

Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital is the official beneficiary of the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon. We are proud to raise awareness for such an important and special place in the Charlotte community. Located within the walls of Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center, Hemby Children’s Hospital offers patients remarkable medical care while giving parents peace of mind. From neonatal and pediatric intensive care to an extensive list of pediatric specialties Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital is large enough to attract some of the most skilled experts in the region, while also being small enough to make every patient feel heard and seen with individualized attention.

Support from community members as well partnerships like the one with Marathon have led to the funding of some incredible projects. Most recently, we have opened The Ronald McDonald Family Room at Caroline’s Corner which will serve as a respite for families while they are on the unit. In partnership with Ronald McDonald house we are able to provide families with a kitchen, laundry, a place to relax, and other programming. Across the hall, is the newly renovated and reopened Blume Family Playground, an on unit indoor outdoor space which will provide our patients the opportunity to do what all kids need most, play. The “under the sea” them, colorful play structures, and fresh air, create a welcoming and inviting bright spot on the unit.
