Ladies unite for the Academy Street Strut, a celebration of women, fitness, and supporting our local nonprofits that serve area women, men, children, and families. You can strut your stuff the whole mile by your self or relay team. (Double Strut!)
The post-strut party lunch is sponsored by the Humble Pig.
The wine glass and lunch party are included with the regular Strut registration, but if you don't want to strut you can sign up just for the party and still get a great wine glass!
Following the 1 mile strut there will be a party at the Cary Chamber of Commerce with a variety of beverages! Invite your friends, co-workers, mother, sister, daughter - everyone really! - to come strut their stuff with you!
The Academy Street Strut is part of FIt & Able's Free-for-All Race Series.

Race Location: Downtown Cary by the Cary Chamber on N. Academy St.
Course Information: The course starts and finishes at the Cary Chamber of Commerce, crosses Academy St. to Cary Town Hall, and heads towards the Cary Art Center on the sidewalks and then back to the Chamber. There will be a checkpoint at the Cary Art Center where the Strut Relays handoff. Restrooms are located at the Chamber.
Relay teams are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Cary Art Center. We recommend the second leg person drives to the Cary Art Center and hands the keys off to the starting strutter to drive back to the Chamber.
Parking: Parking is available at the Cary Chamber of Commerce and the Herb Young Community Center parking garage.
Events: Everyone is welcome to participate! All participants will have chip-timed results that will be posted online. All Fit & Able Productions, Inc. events are inclusion events: anyone of any age, skill-level, or ability can participate in any race! At-home moms can strut too and may push children 2 & Under in strollers but must be registered and numbered in order to participate.
Water Stations: There will be a water station at the Cary Art Center and the finish line. Water is also available at the registration and refreshment area.
Packet Pick-up: All participants must show a photo ID or be with a guardian with a photo ID in order to pick up their race packets and can only pick up their own race packet. Parents may pick up packets for their minor children but not for their spouses.
