Andddd.... we're BACK in 2023!   We sure hope you can join us for the 4th Annual NORTH CAROLINA SPRING CLASSIC 5k, 8k & 16k to be held on Saturday, April 29th!    Details below!

____________________________________________________________________

The race starts and finishes on Main St., in the heart of downtown Holly Springs!     

Note: the 8k is a solid pour!  -just like we fill your pint glass at the Runner's Clubhouse in Pace Yourself!    It measures just a hair over 5 miles...so, when your watch hits 4.9 miles, keep going...and know you're getting bonus steps!                                                                                                                                               

16 Note: From approximately miles 5.75 to 7.75, the surface is soft - a wide, compact mulch trail around BASS LAKE.

Registration closes on Wednesday, April 26th at 11:59pm. 

Are you active military, a military veteran, first responder or healthcare worker?  If so, as part of our appreciation of you, we'd like to provide you with a race discount of 20%.   Please mail:  linda@pyrunco.com.

Bib transfers and event distance changes must be complete by Wed, April 26th at 11:59pm.  See bottom of page for instruction links.      Unfortunately, there are NO REFUNDS or deferrals to a future race date for any circumstance - we will race rain or shine unless conditions are dangerous.
