Set for its 8th annual running this year, this race takes runners on an out-and-back run along three of the city’s paved greenway trails, with a start and finish at North Hills, the mixed-use development in Raleigh’s Midtown area that boasts two hotels and more than 100 restaurants and shops.
You’ll be able to park right beside the start and finish line at North Hills, as the race starting line lies just off Six Forks Road and Rowan Street. From there, runners head west and north along Gates Street and Northbrook Drive, and turn for a short stretch along North Hills Drive before jumping onto the trails.
Here’s where the race — which debuts a new course this year that eliminates the notorious “Lassiter Hill” at the finish line from the past couple of years — gets really interesting. The route turns first onto the Crabtree Creek Greenway and Mine Creek Greenway, which have plentiful shade and flat terrain throughout.
The race is one of eight events hosted by Race 13.1 in North Carolina throughout the year, and it offers runners the chance to receive its custom “City of Oaks”-themed finisher’s medal as as well as a high-quality tech t-shirt with the same logo emblazoned on the front.
Runners can expect to have a text message from Race 13.1 with a link to the live results waiting for them when they cross the finish line, along with a first class post-race party.
