Ramblin’ Rose South Charlotte

May 5, 2020 – update

First, we hope you are well and safe and doing all you can to stay active during these very unique times. As you may know, the Governor of NC has begun implementing different phases of reopening across the state. We have been informed by the local authorities that come race day they expect to be in the middle of phase 2 of the reopening. Under the rules of this phase, large gatherings / events such as ours will not be permitted.

THUS, WE HAVE LITTLE CHOICE BUT TO CANCEL THE 2020 RAMBLIN’ ROSE SOUTH CHARLOTTE EVENT FOR 2020 AND RETURN TO NORMAL IN 2021.

All registered athletes have been sent an email on how to manage your entry to defer into 2021 or transfer into any other 2020 Ramblin’ Rose Event.

We absolutely hate this situation and hope that you understand how difficult it is for us to have to cancel the 2020 event.
