January 1, 2020

Race starts at 10:00am, followed by the New Year, Better U community street party until 1:00pm!

The event starting point is Atrium Health University Hospital at the JW Clay transit station.

The street party will feature healthy and warm soups, hot chocolate and hot cider bars, music and family friendly activities.

Supporting

The New Year’s Day 5K presented by Atrium Healthcare raises awareness about hunger challenges in Charlotte.  This 5K proceeds will benefit the Camino Community Center and the Charlotte 49er food pantries that service hundreds of students and families in need in UCity.

Join the Fun

U!  This event is open to the public and is a great way to start your New Year—runners, walkers and even those who choose to sleep in but still want to support this cause.  Well-mannered and social four legged friends are welcome if kept on a non-retractable lead.
