Join us this year for the 16th annual Movin' for Community Outreach 5K to benefit Tarboro Community Outreach!  Like everything else, our race will be a little different this year. Still, we hope you will join us in person on March 25th or virtually on your own time between March 25 and April 1 to keep our tradition of running, walking, and supporting TCO for another year.   Some things will be different this year to make this race work while complying with safety guidelines protecting all the participants and volunteers.  Please see the updated registration information and COVID safety protocols below before signing up.  You can contact us with any questions by following the link below.

Thank you for your continued support of the race and TCO, and we look forward to seeing you soon!


Register to either run in-person or virtually before March 5 for $20.  Registration after March 5, including race-day registration, will be $25

Please register as early as possible to guarantee we will have a race t-shirt for you on race day.  We will order these shirts in advance and try to estimate the number and sizes of shirts so that everyone participating will receive a shirt, but to be safe, please register by March 18.  Shirts are only guaranteed to registrants registered by March 18. 

Race-Day Registration:

Race-day registration will be contactless registration via runsignup. However, we encourage everyone to register before race day to limit in-person contact between participants and volunteers, and we thank you in advance.

Virtual Racing:

If you ran or walked with us last year in 2021 or 2022, you will remember the virtual Movin' for Community Outreach 5K.  We have opened the race up to in-person running and walking again this year, but we will still have a virtual option if you would instead participate remotely.  We understand individual preferences are different, and we will enjoy and be thankful for your participation either way!  During registration, you may select to run or walk the race virtually.  You may participate virtually anytime, anywhere between March 25 - April 1.  Unfortunately, if you participate virtually, your times will not be included in the in-person race results, but like last year, we encourage you to post your race time and any race photographs to the race's Facebook page HERE.  Virtual race participants will also receive a race t-shirt.  If you are local, you can pick up your virtual race packet during pre-race packet pickup on Friday, March 31.  If you live out of town, we will gladly mail your race t-shirt to you, and you will see an option for that during the registration process.

Race Packet Pickup:

Optional pre-race packet pickup will be Friday, March 31, 2023, from 5:30 to 7:30 in the fellowship hall parking lot of Howard Memorial Presbyterian at 303 E. St. James Street in Tarboro, NC. Race packets will also be available for pickup on race day.


Awards will be given to the top 3 men and women as well as the top 3 men and women in the following age groups:  1-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+.  Plans for award presentations will be made closer to race day.
