The race start area is a 10 min walk up the main entrance road from the parking area. The race will start on road near the Piper Cox House.
What could be better than getting an extra hour of sleep on a beautiful fall night at the Eno? We have individual and group camping available for $15/night. For more information and to make a reservation, please contact us.
Aid Stations
Aid stations will be self-service in order to comply with COVID-19 requirements.
There will be 1 aid station on the course for the 6-mile event (at approx. mile 3) and 2 aid stations on the course for the 11-mile event (at approx. mile 3 and 7). Exact aid station locations and mile markers are indicated on the course map. Water, electrolyte gels, and basic first aid supplies will be available at all aid stations. If you think you will require additional fluids or supplies on the course, we highly recommend that you carry some with you. Many parts of this course are remote and not easily accessible to offer additional aid stations. There are no restrooms on the course.
Bag Check
Bag check will NOT be available this year due to COVID-19 compliance.
Restrooms and porta-jons will be available near the parking area. Please plan to use the restrooms before you walk towards the start area. There are no restroom facilities near the race start area or on the course.
Race Rules
Participants are required to wear a mask or face covering at all times *EXCEPT* when you are more than 6-feet away from another runner on the race course. Face coverings are required at packet pickup, pre-race, when you are waiting in the start area for your wave start, and after you finish the race.
Unregistered runners (pacers, companion runners, dogs, bandits) are NOT ALLOWED. Replacement runners or bib transfers are NOT ALLOWED. Breaking these rules is selfish. You are compromising not only your safety, but also the safety, enjoyment and future of the entire event. Anyone breaking these rules will be disqualified from this and future races. HEADPHONES are NOT permitted on the course.
Trail Etiquette
Please be aware that the race course is not closed to the public, so you may see campers,  hikers, runners, and outdoor enthusiasts on the trail. If you need to pass them, or another runner, please do so at a point in the trail when it is safe to do so and say “passing on the left” in a loud, clear voice. For this reason, headphones are not permitted on the course. And of course, do not litter on the course. Please ensure all trash remains in close proximity to an aid station or carry it with you.
Awards & Timing
Awards will be given for the top 3 overall finishers (M/F) and the top masters finishers (M/F) in both the 6M & 11M. Award winners will be notified by email and will be available for pickup at Bull City Running Co. after the race. PLEASE NOTE: results and awards will not be available at the race site.
Chip timing will be provided by Bull City Running Co. and results will be posted on this website within 24 hours of the finish.
Post-Race Refreshments
Grab and go! To comply with COVID-19 requirements, we will not be having live music or an awards ceremony this year. We invite you to join us for a pre-packaged “grab-and-go” refreshments from PICNIC after you finish the race.
