Certified Course starts near the Catawba College gym and ends in Catawba’s Shuford Stadium.  8K map attached below.  State Champions will be the overall winners, masters, grand masters and senior grand masters winners, male and female. Winners do not have to live in NC to be the State Champion.  The State Championship applies to the 8K race only (not the 5K).

8K STATE RECORDS:  Anyone who is attempting a state record in the 8K must email David Freeze (david.freeze@ctc.net) their intention to do so. Chip timing is not allowed for a NC state record, but we will have a crew manually timing those who notify us prior to the race and check in with David Freeze on race day at Catawba. If you do not check in with David, your time may qualify, but cannot be processed through the state records. David’s number is 704-310-6741 if you have questions. 

RACEJOY:  RaceJoy is back! Live GPS phone tracking of the race will be available for participants and spectators via the optional RaceJoy app. RaceJoy allows 8K and 5K runners and spectators to keep up with their information and where they are on the course as long as the runners enable the app and run with their phones!  Instructions are at the bottom of this page (or click the Racejoy icon at the top of this page).

LIVE RACE RESULTS (5K & 8K):  Live results will be available at: Live Race Results.   8K & 5K race results will be updated at this link once every five minutes throughout the duration of the races.  Full results will be transferred to RunSignUp at the conclusion of the event.
