Unfortunately, there are no refunds or deferments for any circumstances - we will race rain or shine unless conditions are dangerous. If this event is cancelled due to Covid - 19 we will work to find an alternative date.  If we cannot, we will hold a virtual event.

You may transfer your bib to another runner. Bib transfers will need to be done at packet pickup on Thursday and Friday ONLY. Just bring a copy of the original registered runner’s driver license and we will take care of the rest. You may also change from one race distance to another on these two days.


Runners will receive a high quality poly blend race shirt. All shirts are unisex so please select your shirt size accordingly.


We are proud to partner with the REX Healthcare Foundation for this race and a portion of the proceeds from the event will go to support their charitable efforts. 


We are working with the Town of Holly Springs and closely monitoring guidance from the state.   We do expect to have a pre/post race masking requirement (not required while running) and may have to implement a staggered start depending on the situation at the time.    We will keep you all updated through this page and email as information becomes available.
