Event Overview

CARPOOLING AND PARKING AT THE RACE:

Our most scarce resource for this event will be parking, so we had to limit the number of participants.   We kindly ask that you carpool with other runners or your family planning to join you for the event as much as possible.  It will go smoothly if we all work together, park efficiently, and keep our fellow runners in mind. We expect to be at maximum parking capacity and ask for your cooperation and patience while parking.  We also strongly encourage you to park your car inside the grounds of the park and avoid using the sides of the road just outside the park or private yards. 

All of the parking is very close to the start/finish line.   However, we expect no problems and will have park staff and volunteers to assist.

Overview 
The 8-mile and 4-mile course will be at the beautiful Forest Ridge Park Park, just 15 minutes North of Raleigh on Falls Lake!  The 587 -acre park is situated on a peninsula near the Falls Lake Reservoir in Wake Forest, N.C. – and is convenient to Raleigh, Wake Forest, Rolesville, Durham, and Youngsville. 
 
Sections of this course will also run on the remains of the abandoned ghost road North Carolina Route 98 highway.  When Falls Lake was created in 1981, the surrounding rural community was turned upside down. Many forgotten roadways hint at where farms, homes, and mills once stood. The ghosts of the old roadways can be traced – most leading directly into Falls Lake.  Most of this course is single-track, running following the trail system within the park.
