Lake Norman Half Marathon and 5k

THE 2020 Lake Norman Half Marathon and 5k is CANCELLED

Bummed Is How We Feel


We are incredibly sad to announce that we have to cancel the race.  We held out hope for a very long time but, after discussions with our amazing venue and other race directors, it has become evident that we have no choice.  While we would like to believe that COVID - 19 will be gone by May, it does not seem realistic.  You all can not imagine how sad we are.  We do hope you understand.  We have ordered most of the supplies for this race and it will be used next year.  We had such a great event planned for you!


Your Options

You can defer to next year's event.  We will even let you transfer your entry to a friend. The race will be May 2, 2021. If this is what you would like to do, please follow the instructions below:


The defer option can be found by logging on to RunSignUp, navigating to Profile > Upcoming Events > Manage Registration > Defer Registration. Depending on the Race page's theme, the Defer option can be either located on the top of the page or on the left of the page.
