Come PARTYCome Run…Come Party AND Run with us!  Just picture it - Friday evening, the sun is low in the sky, the air isn't too hot or too cold, there's a slight breeze!  Perfect for run!  Also perfect for a party!  So let's do both!  Join us for a 5K followed by Charlotte's Largest Office Party!  Live music, drinks, eats and friends!

400 E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, Charlotte

Charlotte’s Largest Office Party & Happy Hour 5k

EVENT CANCELLED
We are sad to announce that due to weather we will be cancelling Charlotte’s Largest Office Party & Happy Hour 5K presented by Buffalo Wild Wings. HOWEVER – it won’t be a complete loss and here is why!

ENTRY FEE
We know what you are wondering “what about my entry fee?”  Rather than issue refunds WE WILL BE ISSUING ALL REGISTERED RUNNERS A $25 GIFT CERTIFICATE to Run For Your Life.  Here’s how it works:

  • Your bib will serve as the gift certificate (see below section on Bib Pick-Up)
  • Bring your bib into Run For Your Life and you will receive $25 discount at checkout
  • If you have already picked up your bib, MAKE SURE YOUR ORANGE TIMING TAG IS STILL ATTACHED WHEN YOU BRING YOUR BIB IN TO RFYL. 
  • Gift Certificate will be valid starting this Saturday (March 29) through Sunday, May 4
  • Gift Certificate can go towards full priced items or sale items
  • There is no cash value and all $25 must be redeemed in a single transaction
  • Redeemable at 3 locations: Dilworth, Piper Glen, South Park
HAPPY HOUR ANYWAYS
The weather may keep us from running – but not from partying!  We will still be hosting a Happy Hour party at Buffalo Wild Wings from 5pm – 7pm.  All registered runners that come by will get
  • Complimentary Appetizer (thank you Buffalo Wild Wings)
  • Complimentary Beer or Soda - ID REQUIRED (first one only) courtesy of Run For Your Life
  • Your race shirt and bib will be available for pick-up (because you want your $25 to RFYL don’t you!)
  • Complimentary samples from: Skinny Girl Wine, Great Harvest Bread Company & Toast Cafe
BIB PICK-UP
If you have already picked up your shirt and bib – great!  This paragraph doesn’t apply to you!  But if you didn’t, you have some options:

TODAY: You can pick up your bib and shirt today at the store that you selected, just as you normally would have, during the regular packet pick-up hours:

    • Dilworth until 7pm
    • Piper Glen until 6pm
    • South Park until 6pm
    • University until 7:30pm
    • Buffalo Wild Wings until 6pm 


TOMORROW:
 You can get your shirt and bib at Buffalo Wild Wings 11AM- 7PM (but note, there will be NO PARTY until 5pm). Complimentary appetizers and beer will only be offered from 5pm – 7pm. 

NEXT WEEK: If you can’t make it today or tomorrow, no worries.  All unclaimed bibs and shirts will be available for you to pick up next week at the Dilworth Run For Your Life (2422 Park Road).  So come by during our store hours Monday – Saturday.

GPx POINTS
Everyone who registered for this event will automatically receive 1000 points for the Grand Prix Series.
