After several years of hosting a walk at Bond Park, the Cary Place is adding a 5K Run and moving the event to WakeMed Soccer Park. The Park is located at 201 Soccer Park Drive in Cary. In addition to the 5K, there will also be a mile run/walk and a 100-yard Kid’s Dash for children ages 8 and younger.
The 5K begins at 8 am followed by the start of the mile at 8:05. The dash begins as soon as the last finisher completes the 5K – about 9 am
The entry fees for the 5K and mile are $25, if registered by August 24th; $30 if registered August 25th- September 6th, and $35 on race day. The entry fee for the Kid’s Dash is $5, but any children can run it for free if they are also registered for the mile or 5K.
A tech T-shirt will be guaranteed to the first 600 entrants.
Awards for the competitive 5k will be given to the top three finishers overall in the Men’s and Women’s category, and the top three finishers in each of the following age divisions 14-under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70-over
