This will be Most Valuable Charlotte's Second Year, participating in the Kasey Kahne 5K:

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kasey Kahne started the Five Kahne 5K charity run in 2010 with the goal of building an annual event to generate funds for youth causes. 2016 marks the 7th year of the Five Kahne 5K. Whether you’ve run it with us every year, or have a goal of making this your first ever 3.1 mile race, we welcome you! Not only are you being fit, you're also supporting a great cause. Over 8000 children in North Carolina, South Carolina & Virginia have been able to receive free field trips to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. We thank you for participating the Five Kahne 5K so we can continue to inspire youth and help the needs of ill children and their families.

Weather Information:

We expect our events to happen rain or shine. No one, including the Race Director, wants to make changes to an event on race day. However, the safety of our participants is of paramount concern. In the event of adverse weather conditions, the Race Director, in communication with the local law enforcement and the city, may delay the event, cancel the event, or make changes to the race course. Definition of Adverse Weather Conditions The event may be delayed or canceled due to Tornado Warning, Tornado Watch, Thunderstorm, Heavy Rain, or any other extreme weather condition. Light to moderate rain is not considered an Adverse Weather Condition. Communication If the event is canceled more than 12 hours before the event, we will notify participants via the race website, email and social media. If the event is canceled less than 12 hours before the event we will notify participants via the race website and social media. Participants will be notified via email where they can pick up their race packets if they have not already done so. Refunds As stated in the Registration Policies, refunds are not issued for events canceled for Adverse Weather Conditions as the funds for the event have already been spent in preparation for race day. - See more at:
