Both races will start and finish near the Piper Cox House at Eno River State Park. Please follow signs for parking and race start after you enter the park.
Packet Pickup
Pre-race Packet pickup will be available at Bull City Running Co. on Friday, Oct. 23rd from 4-6:30PM.
Packet pickup will also be available the morning of the race at the Piper Cox House (race start) from 6:45-8:15AM.
All runners will receive a custom race mug.
PLEASE CARPOOL! Parking is very limited. Parking will be available in the large lower parking lots at Eno River State Park. Carpooling is highly encouraged. The race start and packet pick-up area is a 10 min walk up the main entrance road from the parking area. The race will start on this same road near the Piper Cox House, so please note that traffic will be temporarily stopped at 8am to allow for the start of the 11-mile and again at 8:30am for the start of the 6-mile.
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
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 drink, 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
A bag check will be available at the race start. You must provide your own bag and we accept no liability for lost or missing items. No valuables, please!
Restrooms are available near the parking area and near the start area. There are no restroom facilities on the course.
Race Rules
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 other 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.
Awards will be given for the top 3 overall finishers (M/F) and the top masters finishers (M/F), as well as the top finisher in each age group.
An awards ceremony will be held as soon as results are available the morning of the race. 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 Celebration
We invite you to join us for delicious BBQ, beans & banana pudding from PICNIC and live music from The Guilty Pleasures after we cheer you on at the finish!
