Charity Chase Half Marathon is an rewarding run for those up for the challenge. Hickory is in the foothills of North Carolina and the race course winds around the city with elevation changes that will require some effort, you’ll have run up and down the equivalent of a sixty-story building … MORE

    The local Rotary club of Hickory has been organising the race for many years and with their experience, they set up a perfect race. This year for the first time a 10k as well. We all started together from the Union square and the half marathoners did an additional loop to what the 10k runners did. I really enjoyed the different neighbourhoods but if you only train in the flat these NC hills might be very challenging for you. The water and isotonic support along the track was very sufficient (about almost every mile) also since the race has a competition over the best support crew (local school, people dressed as pink minions, …). The race was relatively inexpensive despite collecting money for a good course. I scored a cute bobblehead figure for coming in first in my age group besides a big medal, cotton shirt, running socks and plenty of free food including pizza.

    Race was well put on. Plenty of volunteers, water/gatorade stops, cheering zones. Nice medal and awards (bobble heads) – see attached photo. Good refreshments afterwards. Not really too bad with hills either.
