Cannonball Marathon, Half Marathon & 5k – October 22 & 23, 2021
The Cannonball is one of the longest-running endurance events in North Carolina, but we have something brand new in 2021, the “DOUBLE BARREL” challenge! The 5K moves to Friday evening so you can run the 5K AND either the half or full on Saturday. Extra medals and schwag!
We have seen blazing fast times in previous years for the half, but don’t be fooled the course isn’t a walk in the park. 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.
