- Santa Run/Walk for Hunger 5k and 1/2-mile Fun Run, Mt. Ulla, NC: If you're seeking a small race in a rural area that's not too far away, then this is the one for you. Where's Mt. Ulla? Why, between Mooresville and Salilsbury off Highway 150. Put on by the Salisbury Rowan Runners, the proceeds go to the Rowan Helping Ministries.
- New Balance Girls on the Run 5K, Belmont, NC: You don't have to be a girl to participate in this first annual 5k in historic downtown Belmont. Proceeds of will provide scholarships for future Girls on the Run.
- Mistletoe Half-Marathon and 5k, Winston-Salem, NC: Sure, it's a little bit of a drive from the Charlotte area, but this race is worth it. Very scenic hilly course that passes Reynolda Manor.
