Run for the Ta Tas

Saturday, October 2, 2021

Mayfaire Town Center | Wilmington, NC


The Run for the Ta Tas is a 5K Chaser Race with a 1 Mile Kids Competitive Run, and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk. But this is not your typical 5K – a Chaser Race is a unique race format where women start first, giving them a head start over the men. Men start exactly 2 mins & 30 secs after the women start (Hint on the name: Run For the Ta Tas).

For the 5K, to reduce crowding at the start line, runners with an anticipated finish time of 25 minutes or faster, will start in the competitive women's and men's wave. All other 5K runners/walkers will start together following the men's competitive wave.



Pictured is 2020 swag, 2021 swag designs coming soon.

This year's race proceeds benefit three wonderful organizations that aid in the fight against breast cancer. The Pink Ribbon Project provides patients in southeastern NC access to 3D mammography screenings, comfort to those undergoing cancer treatment and community awareness of breast cancer and the benefits of early diagnosis and screenings. Love is Bald was created in memory of Peyton Dergay and raises money for cancer patients and their families in the Port City and Triangle areas. Going Beyond the Pink’s mission is to offer free access to support resources, health and wellness education, individual and family support, and financial assistance to the breast cancer community.
