12-Hour Run to End Homelessness (Virtual)

Global Running Day (June 2, 2021) is just around the corner. The holiday is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. We challenge you to get up and get moving, but this year do it for a worthy cause. Join RunningWorks for the sixth annual 12-Hour Run to End Homelessness.

This race is designed to raise awareness about issues of homelessness and poverty in Mecklenburg County. Our 2021 goal is to encourage runners across Charlotte (and around the world) to run a collective 3,456 miles. According to the Mecklenburg County Community Support Services “One Number” February 2021 report, there are a minimum of 3,456 individuals (adults and children) experiencing homelessness in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. Each mile ran represents one of these individuals!

For the second year in a row, the 12-Hour Run to End Homelessness is going virtual! The good news is that means you can choose the course, distance, pace and time of day to run that's most convenient for you. No need to set your alarm, circle the block for parking or stand in long lines to register. Technically, you don't even have to leave your house. But it's probably much more fun to get outside. This race is stroller-friendly. Pets of all kinds are welcome.
