Sunflowers Social Run (Thursday, July 11, 2019 – 6:00 p.m.)

It’s time to run and take your mandatory sunflower selfies!  Come join North Carolina Roadrunners Club and Runologie for a nice run from Raleigh downtown to the Dix Park sunflower field and back — about 3.5 miles round-trip! (route maps provided) We’ll be hanging with the regular Runologie crowd (NOTE 6:00 PM START TIME), and I don’t want to tell you what to do afterward, but State of Beer is next door.  And there’ll be some post-run water handy. No cost, bring your friends! All paces welcome!  Thanks to the folks at Runologie for welcoming NCRC and helping provide some treats and surprises!

8th Annual NCRC Snoopy’s Social Run (2/24/2019)


Join the annual NCRC Snoopy’s Social Run Sunday, February 24th where we’ll run from Snoopy’s to Snoopy’s to Snoopy’s with a treat (optional) at each location!

We will assemble at the Snoopy’s Meredith College location (3600 Hillsborough Street) at 2:30 p.m. for a mandatory safety briefing and group photo, and then we’ll run in groups to the Snoopy’s downtown location (600 Hillsborough Street) and then on to the E Whitaker Mill location (1931 Wake Forest Road), where we will try to do door prizes by 4:30 p.m.

Again this year, your $10 donation entitles you to a treat at each stop, with proceeds going to Mr. Snoopy’s favorite charity, the SPCA of Wake County. This is our token of thanks for Mr. Snoopy and his team for hosting the NCRC and providing the great hot dogs! Additional donations are greatly appreciated, of course.

More details will be emailed to participants as we get closer to the event.

NCRC members will have early registration preference from until Midnight on Superbowl Sunday (Feb 3rd 2019).  After that Sunday, registration is open to the general public.  Bring a friend and wear a costume!
