NEIGHBORHOOD CHEER STATION  

Charlotte, our runners need you! Encourage runners as they pass through your neighborhood with a cheer station, complete with hand-made posters, cowbells, and encouraging hurrahs. To give your cheer station a boost, we will reimburse you for your cheer station expenses up to $200.

Tips for a good cheer station:

  • Make it a neighborhood celebration with music or food
  • Host sign-making parties before the race
  • Bring chairs and blankets to stay comfortable during the race
