Benefitting Many Local Charities
Fit & Able invites you to be part of the Charity Distance Festival to support many area nonprofits that serve our community.

Nonprofits provide important programs and services to our community for the needs not met by the government or other organizations. Unfortunately, they can’t all have their own races to help raise support for their missions. That’s why Fit & Able is staging the Charity Distance Festival at no charge to the participating nonprofits to help them raise much needed revenue and provide them the opportunity to raise awareness about their efforts too.

Participating Nonprofits Include:

Wade Edwards Learning Lab
Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina
Dorcas Ministries
Soroptimist Raleigh

So, pick your distance – Fun Run, 5K, or 8K – then invite your friends and family to race with you! All 5K and 8K runners (live and virtual) will get a Charity Distance Festival medal.

Scroll down for more details about how you can win great prizes and swag by referring people to sign up with you!

Invite your friends and family to run together!
The Charity Distance Festival is part of Fit & Able’s Free-for-All Race Series.
