Feetures First Timer’s Club

Our mission is to move our city forward one step at a time and we're holding true to that by getting everyone involved.

We’re excited to bring back our First Timer’s Club in 2022, now with the backing of Charlotte’s favorite socks – Feetures! Founded in 2002, Feetures is headquartered in the Queen City and is the #1 running sock brand in the country. Together, we want to stand by our mission of moving Charlotte forward one step at a time. To do this, we’ve created a club for those that have always wanted to get into this amazing sport and are ready for big goals.

We know it can be intimidating to try something new, including running. If you know someone who has talked about, shown interest in, or is ready to run their first ever race, we want to be that event. We want to make it a little easier by offering a one-time registration fee of $20 in 2022 for up to 100 runners. The only catch is that this has to be their very first race. Beyond that, it’s complete honor system and we will be their biggest cheerleaders. We’ll provide them with a #FirstTimeAround guide, a pair of Feetures socks, and encouraging emails when training starts.

Registration for our Feetures First Timer’s Club is now closed for 2022, but please email FirstTimers@aroundthecrown10k.com with any questions about registering next year!
