On June 7th, We Run Together.

Global Running Day is our holiday; a celebration of the activity we love and the sport that brings our community together. We’re inviting all runners and walkers to join us on June 7th to mark the occasion, set a goal and cross the finish line. We're offering both an in-person and virtual option for 2023! 

The first 200 registered in-person runners/walkers will get a medal, t-shirt, a locopop, and some goodies from our sponsors. We're excited to work with our local and national sponsors for this event!

Kids Run:

We will have a free and family friendly kid run starting at 7:30 pm! We'll do a shorter version of our run (~1/2 mile) and all kids will be given a medal! We'll have a quick check-in before the run around 7:20 near the start/finish line. Family members are encouraged to run with their kids! Thank you!

Help Us Give Back: Fleet Feet Carrboro & Durham will donate $3.10 of each registration to Girls on the Run of the Triangle. Why? Because everyone benefits when we support our kids. At Girls on the Run of the Triangle we aim to inspire ALL girls of ALL abilities and backgrounds to build confidence, develop a positive mental attitude (find joy), and make intentional decisions, while fostering care and compassion for themselves and for others. Our incredible volunteer coaches are trained on how to use fun physical activities and have dynamic discussions to build social, emotional and physical skills in every girl while encouraging healthy habits for life. With your gift, you are helping a girl unleash her limitless potential. You are giving her a place where she feels accepted and understood, a place where she can connect with her peers, gain confidence, and discover her true power and potential. A place where she belongs.

She is counting on you to give her Girls on the Run. And we encourage you to consider donating as well!

Another way you can help is to become a SoleMate! SoleMates raise critical funds for Girls on the Run while completing a physical challenge. You don't need to be a star athlete to join—you only need to be a champion for the girls in their communities. Click here to learn more!

Race Course

Our 2023 The Big Run 5K course will start and finish near the Eno River Farmers Market Pavilion in downtown Hillsborough, NC. It will follow the Riverwalk east towards the Historic Occoneechee Speedway Tract, follow the trail through the woods to the speedway, do a lap around the speedway and head back to the finish area at the Farmers Market. While a small portion of the the course is on a very beginner friendly trail (narrow but minimal roots and rocks), the majority of the course features paved bike paths and crushed gravel. For those who are comfortable with going off-road, this course can be navigated by a running stroller.
