FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE USE:
CHARLOTTE – Excitement is building for the 2022 Novant Health Charlotte Marathon weekend. And with just weeks before the November 11-12 event, organizers are thrilled to announce a nearly sold-out Expo location!
Uptown’s eclectic and accessible Victoria Yards (219 E 7th St, Charlotte, NC 28202) will host the 2022 Expo on Friday, November 11 from 10am – 7pm. Runners can pick up bib numbers, event tees, and extras, and engage with sponsors, partners, and friends. Music, beer, and food trucks will set the stage for a full day of fun for anyone who wants to be part of the action.
“We’re busting the template – again – for what, where, and how an event Expo event should be,” said Alaina Williams, Director of Awesome Things for the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon. “Runners, family, friends, and our partners will be in for another out-of-the-ordinary pre-race experience.”
Along with a “wow” experience, organizers wanted to make sure the location was easy to find and easy to get to. Victoria Yards is a surprising, accessible uptown location for both in-and-out visitors and those who want to stay and enjoy the Expo.
