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.

In 2021, 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, make the commitment to take that first step, 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 2021. 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 and encouraging emails when training starts.

Our First Timer’s Club has ended for this year, but we look forward to opening it up again for our 2022 race. Please feel free to reach out about next year if this sounds like something for you or your friends, tell them to email FirstTimers@aroundthecrown10k.com and include their/your first and last name along with their/your date of birth!
