The Huntersville Half Marathon and Holiday 5k is a rain or shine event. The race will begin on time and operate as expected. We will continue monitoring the weather and working with the local authorities to make any decisions about the operations of the event. If any changes are made to the normal operations of the event you will be notified via email, facebook and the race website. Participant safety is our first concern.

The MISSION of SPEED FOR NEED is to empower members of the community affected by disability or disease through participation in fitness events. Simply put, our goal is to help people get to the Finish Line and finish the race… their race.
We do this by mobilizing High Impact Men (HIM) in F3 Nation in responsibly pushing these loved ones in specialized racing chairs to create an experience impossible by themselves due to their limitations. In doing so, SPEED FOR NEED exists for the enjoyment of the athlete-rider (who we call Track Commanders) and their families, to raise awareness and financial support for local charities and partners, and to increase the visibility of F3Nation in our communities for the purpose of invigorating all men, and sparking a call to action.
SPEED FOR NEED was created earlier this year and ran the first race on July 4th down in Charlotte. To date, we have run 9 races, including the Run for your Life Novant Health 5K, in Cornelius, a couple of weeks ago. Below is the race video that was made to commemorate that race and will give you an idea of the impact that the race has on the Track Commanders and the community. The SPEED FOR NEED website (www.speedforneed.com) also has a bunch of information and race videos from past races (they are all well worth your time):
