North Carolina Aquariums
Run for the Planet

Sept. 12-20, 2020

Virtual 1 mile - 5K - 10K - 13.1 miles

Its more than a race.
IT's Movement to Make a difference
For You, for the North Carolina Aquariums and for the Planet. 
Things are different this year.
The North Carolina Aquariums have been closed to the public for more than five months.
But we won't let that stop us. We're growing an idea, making it virtual and taking it global. 
Multiple distances. New fun elements.
Open to anyone, anywhere, with the ease of an app.  
What hasn't changed? Our reason for being.
The 2020 Run for the Planet welcomes racers of all skill levels with a fun,
no-pressure atmosphere to do something healthy for themselves and for the planet.
Proceeds from this event will support the conservation and sustainability efforts of the three North Carolina Aquariums and Jennette’s Pier.
