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.
This year’s event will be held on Sunday October 9, 2016 at 10:00 am with a great city route beginning and ending at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The energetic race fest will be held on the NASCAR Plaza for all runners, spectators, family and friends to enjoy including free contests and giveaways, exciting entertainment for all ages, a group warm up for participants and an awards ceremony for the top finishers.
We hope you will consider being a part of this great event and thank you for your continued support!

NEW FOR 2016! RUNNING TEAMS
New for this year, you’re able to create your own running team when registering, or you can join a pre-existing team. A special custom t-shirt for your team will then be available to purchase to show your pride for your team/family/company while you run or walk the Five Kahne. You can upload your own logo for the front of the shirt, and chose which color you’d like to buy. Do you think your team can get the most members and help us raise even more money for Charlotte area children’s charities?
