Whether a casual walker or an avid runner, the Mecklenburg County Bar invites you to join us for our third annual MCB Cares 5K Walk/Run. Kicking off on the morning of June 3, 2017, this 3.1 mile USATF-certified course will start at our Mecklenburg County Bar & Foundation Center and runs through the Biddleville, Seversville and Smallwood neighborhoods

We're delighted about hosting the race for the third year!  With team signn-ups underway, we’re excited about reaching our goal of at least 300 runners/walkers.  Participants can register as individuals, or sign up as part of a team (made up of eight or more participants).  Non-attorney colleagues, family and friends are welcome to participate.

On race day, the first 250 regestered runners and walkers will receive an MCB Cares 5K T-Shirt. We’ll also provide after-event refreshments during our post-race awards ceremony with recognition for both individual participants and running teams.


What is the MCB Cares 5K Walk/Run?
The MCB Cares 5K Walk/Run is an experience that is less about how fast you run and more about enjoying time with your colleagues, community members, friends and family. So whether you are a casual walker or an avid runner, the MCB Cares 5K Walk/Run invites you to come be a part of the fun.
