The Big South 5K Road Race serves as a fundraiser for middle school athletic programs in the Charlotte area, including schools in Mecklenburg, Union and York. Since the inaugural race in 2010, the race has raised nearly $175,000 for middle school athletics.
Race registration comes with a custom Big South 5K shirt! Age group winners receive a medal.

Volunteering for the Big South 5K is always a great opportunity to make a difference in our community, specifically for the middle school boys and girls athletic programs in the local area! If you or your organization have an interest in assisting us with race setup/breakdown, water/food stations or course oversight, your help would be greatly appreciated!
To assist, click the "Volunteer" tab to register as a volunteer or email our Race Coordinator (contact information is below).
All volunteers will be receiving volunteer shirts, food, and other items as a thank you for their generosity and service to the community!
If participant indicates a middle school affiliation during the registration process, a percentage of the registration fees will go toward the athletic booster club for the school. Additional donations beyond the registration fee can be made to the school of your choice during the registration “check out."
