Experience one of North Carolina’s most beautiful parks while you and your family walk and run your first 5K at Dorothea Dix Park. A 1-mile event is also available. This fun family event features special family pricing and focuses on building happy and healthy families which makes it one of the top things to do in Raleigh!

PLEASE NOTE: The registration deadline to receive a t-shirt has passed but, a limited number of shirts have been ordered. Sign up now and come to Pre-Race Packet Pick-Up for an opportunity to get a cool shirt! The race starts at 11:00, but feel free to come earlier as festivities begin at 10:30.
