Global Running Day 2018

Global Running Day 2018 was one for the books! Our motto was basically “Go Big or Go Home” so naturally we partnered with Charlotte Agenda (user’s guide to Charlotte) and one of the best breweries in town and amazing sponsor of the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon – NoDa Brewing Company! We had many goals for this day including running all the miles, drinking all the beer and celebrating what we all love to do: RUN. We completely shattered those goals bringing in over 400 runners and collectively running 1,388 miles! That’s basically the equivalent of driving from Boston, MA to Orlando, FL so yea we pretty much crushed it!


Runners had the choice of running 1, 3 or 5 miles led by our Novant Health Charlotte Marathon Ambassadors and NoDa Run Club Ambassadors. Registration discounts to our November 3rd event were available on-site as well as awesome giveaways, food trucks, King of Pops popsicles and of course BEER. 


NoDa Brewing Company decided they were going to donate $1 per mile ran to our Official Beneficiary of the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon: Hemby Children’s Hospital! So, with 1,388 miles ran that is a total of $1,388 donated to Hemby Children’s Hospital! We cannot thank all the runners and contributors enough for choosing our event to celebrate Global Running Day! It was everything we hoped & dreamed AND MORE!
