Now in its fifth year, this race is part of the 2018 Second Empire Grand Prix – the third race in the 14-event year-long series.

Last year a record field of over 400 runners and walkers signed up for this event.  They were led by Omar Wiggan (17:36) and Erin Taylor (19:08).  Taylor’s time was a new course record for the women.  The men’s event record is held by Matthew Loeffler (16:29) set in 2015.

The race is sponsored by Sola Coffee & Café, and the race starts and finishes at their store located at 7705 Lead Mine Road in North Raleigh.  Click here to download a course map.
