Registration Closing Date
Friday, September 13, 2013 @ 2:59 AM (EDT)
The name of this race a bit misleading since it is run on one of the flattest course in the Triangle with nary a hill in sight. The race starts and finishes at the Cedar Fork Community Center located at 1050 B Town Hall Drive in Morrisville. It is the same course used by the Run with Heart 5K.
Last Year's Results
In its second year last September, the event had a record field of 260 registered entrants. Michael Dwomoh led the field in 16:57 while Jordan Jenkins took the women?s title in 17:53 ? a new course records for the women. Kevin Hill set the men?s course record of 16:51 in 2011.
