Home > Event > 2016 ACA Run Club Challenge Starts THIS Week!

Are you up for a Charlotte Run Challenge this June?

Join Active Charlotte Alliance for our 2nd annual 8-Day Run Club Challenge, June 16-23. We are partnering up with several local breweries, B-Cycles, 26Brew, Viva Raw, and First Wind Cycling to get fit, have fun, get swag and win prizes.

It’s so easy. We meet up at local breweries and run clubs…and run. Then enjoy a post run conversation over an icy cold beer, water or Kombucha. We also vote on the best run. This challenge also provides a unique opportunity to explore different neighborhoods in the Queen City.

Our 1st #acarunchallenge was a sweaty success. High five to last year’s #acarunchallenge winner Triple C Brewery for the best brewery run. Who will win the golden chalice this year?

Punch cards, Run Support and Training Support Programs

Get a stamp for every run you attend and increase your chance of winning some swag. Who will make all 8 runs?!  Punch cards for the run club challenge are sponsored by First Wind Cycling and Fitness.

Returning in a support role again this year is our friends at Charlotte’s bike share program, B-Cycles, to provide the water, smiles and swag.

We have also partnered with the new 26/Brew (powered by OrthoCarolina) who will provide inspiration for you to run even more!

Viva Raw will be on site at some of our runs to dazzle your taste buds with fresh juice samples!


Thanks to these amazing partners! All we need beginning this week…. is YOU!

VOTE for your favorite run club event to crown the 2016 champion!

Beginning on Thursday, June 16, and throughout the 8-day duration, tiles representing each individual run club location will appear on the Active Charlotte Alliance Instagram feed.  To vote for your favorite or favorites, simply “LIKE” that image on the Instagram page and your vote is cast!  Use the hashtag, #acarunchallenge, when you post your vote!
