CHARLOTTE – Chicken wins by a mile! RunCharlotte is excited to announce Chick-fil-A Charlotte’s enhanced partnership in the 2022 Novant Health Charlotte Marathon weekend, November 11-12.

As part of their activation on this partnership, Chick-fil-A Charlotte has elevated its position to presenting sponsorship of the 5k event – which starts minutes after the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon. Chick-fil-A Charlotte will elevate the race-day experience with branded cowbells at the event finish line, food for staff and volunteers, prizes for an upcoming costume contest, and other extras.

“Chick-fil-A Charlotte is excited to be the presenting partner of the Chick-fil-A 5k in 2022,” said Chick-fil-A operator, Justin Riddle. “With over six years of partnership of the Kids Fun Run, we are looking forward to stepping into the 5K and can’t wait to see you all on race day. Everyone’s invited to visit one of our 52 area restaurants to enjoy their favorites before or after the event!”

If you’ve been to a Charlotte area Chick-fil-A lately, you’ve likely seen the “Chicken by a Mile” in-store signage announcing the November 12 event date and registration information. Race Director Tim Rhodes says the partnership is a perfect fit for the approachable, family friendly 5k event.

“Chick-fil-A Charlotte has been a part of the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon success story for years,” added race director, Tim Rhodes. “To have them grow their involvement really speaks to the value we all find in this partnership and the running community.”
