About Together We Stand NC

Together We Stand NC is a grassroots movement to create awareness of the issues of social and racial injustice as it relates to Black Americans. The Together We Stand NC leadership has worked across our running communities, retailers, brands, and partners asking that we lace up our running shoes and run on February 20-26, 2021.⁠

Honoring Ahmaud Arbery

On February 23, 2020, 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery was killed in New Brunswick, Georgia. The 2nd Annual Maud 2.23 will be held to honor Ahmaud’s memory. We encourage our participants and community to speak out about the senseless violence against Black communities in America.

Registration for Maud 2.23 begins January 1, 2022
