St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Marathon & Relay – February 11, 2018
What… a marathon in February. Don’t fret you get to run it with your buddies. Get 3, 4,5 or more friends together because this race is all about teams. The marathon is 16 laps. Each person on the team will run 4 laps or approximately 6.5 miles. You get to go to work on Monday and tell everyone you ran a marathon (just leave out it was a relay). Hey if you are crazy enough to do this race all by yourself we won’t stop you. The course is certified so it is a Boston Qualifier. If you’re a loner and don’t have 3 friends then convince your cousin to do it with you because we have a 2 person division as well. And, for those with lots of friends, we have a 5-8 person teams…so there is something for everyone!

Cannonball Marathon, Half Marathon & 5k – October 13, 2018

The race is also perfect for the beginner runner because of the gorgeous scenery. The backdrop for the race is Country Park and the beautiful north Greensboro countryside. Country Park, with the Greensboro Science Center next door, is a great place for the family to hang out listen to our live band while you run.
