The April 4, 2020 Habitat Hammer Race has been Postponed until a later date.

New Date: Postponed until a later date we will provide a date as soon as we have one.

In order to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, Governor Roy Cooper has notified businesses, churches, and nonprofits in North Carolina that we need to cancel or postpone gatherings of more than 100 people at this time, and this includes the Habitat Hammer.   Due to circumstances beyond our control the Habitat Hammer Race has been postponed until a later date.  We will announce the date when we have more information.   The postponed date will depend on when the race is safe to be held.  We appreciate you understanding and patience during this difficult time of uncertainty.   Your Race registration and payment will be good for the next race date.  Again Thank you for your understanding and your support of Habitat for Humanity. 


Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!
