The entire Run the Rail 5K will take place on the Rail Trail!

Your participation in Run the Rail 5K supports the services and programs offered by Hospice & Palliative Care Lincoln County. If you have ever needed hospice care for a loved one or know anyone who has, you understand why our services are so extraordinary. Our goal is to care for those facing serious or terminal illness, helping them make the most of every day.

All proceeds of this year’s Run the Rail 5K will support our new office location and be matched through a generous matching grant from the Timken Foundation. Your participation this year will have twice the impact - as it is matched, dollar for dollar.  Your participation and generous support help us provide care for patients without insurance, specialized services for children, grief care for anyone who has experienced loss, and community education initiatives that help individuals in our community reach important end-of-life decisions.

You may pay race fees online until 10am on Friday, June 27, or in person at the HPCLC office located at 900 Dontia Drive, Lincolnton.  $30 registrations fees will be accepted on race day between 7:30am-8:30am. 


 Registration Fees          By June 27          On Day of Run      
 Run the Rail 5K  $17  $30
 5K Memorial Walk  $17  $30
 Kids Fun Run  Free, or $10 with  purchase of t-shirt


In addition to featuring the Run/Walk, there is a “Phantom Runner” option for those who can not participate, but still want to support the mission of Hospice & Palliative Care Lincoln County.  Phantom Runners provide all of the love and none of the labor, and receive a T-shirt and a race number after registering. 

Payment options in person:  Cash, check, or charge
Payment options by mail:  Check or charge

Entry fees are non-refundable. 

The Run the Rail 5K brochure is available online for your convenience to print, complete, and mail in!
