Can I check in my gear/personal belongings?

Yes, we will have gear check.


Can I walk the event?

We love our walkers. We ask walkers to be aware that course time limits are race specific. For road races, we ask for a 16 min./mile pace. If you fall below this pace, we can unfortunately no longer guarantee course support—which is paramount for your safety. Aid stations, medical support, portable toilets, and road closures will start to become unavailable to participants. The local police and race organizers will ask you to reroute to a shorter version of the course or move up onto the sidewalk where you will be required to obey regular traffic laws.


Where are the aid stations?

Race participants will receive hydration and/or nutrition at the following course locations:

  • 5K - Approximately mile 1.5 (Turn around) on Long Branch Trail (See course map)
  • 5K Finish Line & Radar Brewing


Things to do in the area with family and friends?

Winston-Salem is the perfect spot for this race – and for your next adventure! The City of Arts and Innovation is an awesome place to run a great race and have a great time! While visiting Winston-Salem there will be plenty of activities for the entire family.  


Are strollers allowed?

Running baby strollers are allowed but must have a minimum of 6″ wheels.


What is your race day cancellation policy?

In the event the race should be canceled for reasons beyond the control of the Race Director or Race Committee (inclement weather or unsafe weather conditions; local, state or national emergency), refunds will not be made, but race packets, including race shirts, will be available at a location to be determined.


Can I run with my pet or use inline skates?

Yes, leashed and well-behaved pets are encouraged to join in the fun!  Please be responsible and clean up after your furry friend! If you'd like to run with a rescue please arrive early and visit the Ruff Love Rescue station. Ruff Love brings adoptable friends that you can run/walk with during the event, but doing so is on a first come basis!

We do not allow, bicycles, inline skates or any means of transportation other than running, walking handcycle or wheelchairs. Race Director reserves the right to reject any entry or to remove any participant from the race course without explanation.
