The race begins in front of McDougle Middle School, winds through downtown Carrboro and its neighborhoods, and finishes on the McDougle track.
There will be water stations at the 2-mile and 3-mile points on the course, but please make sure that you are well-hydrated at the start.
Please carpool and arrive early for parking. There are 3 lots in front of McDougle and a fourth lot behind the school (off of Hillsborough, and the lot to use if you are later than 7:50 am, since Old Fayetteville will be closed).

"Little Firecracker" races are FREE for children aged 2-9 and will be held after the race at approximately 9:30 (after the awards ceremony). Participants will be divided into age groups 2-3 (50 yards), 4-5 (100 yards), and 6-7, 8-9 (200 yards) and will race on the McDougle Track. All kids will receive finisher ribbons.
There is no pre-registration, but parents must sign a release form before the events. Also, join us before or during the race at the family activity area and enjoy chalk drawing, jump ropes, hula hoops and an inflatable obstacle course!
Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female winners in the following categories: Open and Masters (40+), 9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-55, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75+. Open and Masters winners are not eligible for age group awards. The top 3 winners in the Athena and Clydesdale categories will also receive awards.
We encourage everyone to join us at our events. If you want to walk the course, that's great. However, if the trailing police car passes you, you must follow normal pedestrian rules -- move to the sidewalk or side of the road. Our timing service tries to capture the time for everyone who crosses the finish line, so even if the police close the course, you should receive a finish time.
Baby strollers/joggers are permitted, but for the safety of all participants please start at the back behind the runners and walkers. The start can be crowded -- last year we had 860 finishers!
Pets are not permitted on the race course.
