State Games Return to Triangle Region This Month
17 Jun, 2021
Under the leadership of North Carolina Amateur Sports long-time Executive Director, Chuck Hobgood, the State Games of North Carolina, the state’s largest Olympic-style, multi-sport event, returns to the Triangle in June of 2021.
The Games take place annually and typically include 13,000 or more athletes. Having been in the Triad and Charlotte for the last several years, the State Games return to their roots, as North Carolina Amateur Sports is located in Durham, and the Games were first established in the Triangle with the launch of the inaugural State Games in 1986.
Those Games only had a little over 3,000 athletes, so you can see the State Games of North Carolina have grown to be quite popular and successful over the years.
TSC CEO Hill Carrow was the founder of the State Games and served as its first Executive Director.
“It’s been a joy to see what Chuck and his team have done to grow the Games and expand them across the State,” Hill said. “He’s executed on a great vision that has had major positive impacts on the participants and the host communities.”
