Run with Us at Carowinds

The Run and Ride Race is returning to Carowinds on Sept. 9-10, and The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte has been chosen as the local charity. You can have a one-of-a-kind run through the amusement park, finishing with rides on some of the best coasters in the country. And the best part: registration includes your park ticket and a portion of the proceeds benefits the Clubs!

Choose between a half-marathon, 10K, 5K, or a 1-mile run. After the race, have an action packed day filled with tons of thrill rides, family attractions, and Dinosaurs Alive! Access to Carowinds’ waterpark, Carolina Harbor, is also included with your ticket.

Not much of a runner? Come volunteer and cheer on your friends and family. To volunteer, visit, click “Volunteer” at the top of the page, and choose your race-day job. Be sure to note you are volunteering with the Boys & Girls Clubs so we get credit!

The race company, Rev3 Adventure, is donating $3 for every half-marathon entry and $2 for every 10K and 5K entry. Use code BGCHARLOTTE for 15% off registration. They also will donate $10 to our Clubs for each volunteer.
