In 2014 a crowd of over 450 runners and walkers turned out for this event in North Raleigh.  Tibor Vegh (15:54) was the overall winner, while his wife, Kristina Vegh (17:48) won the women’s title.  Since this was the first time this course had been run, both performances are automatic course records.

The afternoon begins with the start of the Kid’s Dash at 2:00 pm followed by the mile at 2:10 and the 5K at 2:30.

Entrants in the 5K have a choice of entering as a competitive or recreational runner. Competitive entrants will receive an official time, be eligible for awards, and will receive Grand Prix points. Recreational entrants will not receive official times, but can either time themselves or see their times on the digital clock at the finish line.

The entry fees are $25 for the 5K if received on or before April 6th, $30 from April 7th to April 25th, and $35 on race day.  For the 1-mile run, the entry fees are $15 (on or before April 6th) and $20 after April 6th up to and including race day, and the fee for the Kid’s Dash is $5 with no late fees.

The entry fees for both the mile and 5K includes a short-sleeved shirt guaranteed to all those whose entries are received on or before April 6th. After that date the race will do their best to provide everyone with a shirt but cannot guarantee it.

There is no shirt included with the fee for the Kid’s Dash, but a shirt can be ordered with those entries for an additional $10 if received on or before April 6th.

In the 5K, all competitive finishers will receive a “chip time” and a “gun time” with awards all based on “gun times.” No official times will be taken for those signing up for the mile, but all finishers will be able to see their finishing times on a digital clock at the finish line.
