Course Highlights Full and half marathon run the same course for 2.5 miles to and from the American Tobacco Trail (ATT) Full marathon has 21 miles on the ATT and the half marathon has 8 miles on the ATT Boston Qualifier
Packet pickup is available at the pre-race Expo, held the Friday and Saturday before the race. On-site registration for the full marathon will be avaialble at the Expo if available. We expect the half marathon to sell out before the expo so there will be no transfers TO the half marathon.
The Expo will be held at our host hotel, the Embassy Suites of Cary, located at 201 Harrison Oaks Blvd., Cary, NC 27513.
Start & End Time Both the full and half marathon begin at the same starting line at 7am. The course closes at 2pm and runners on the course at that time will be picked up and brought to the finish line.
Come join us after the race for celebration at the Appalachian Mountain Brewery Beer Garden where you can enjoy a brew, listen to some music, and revel in your accomplishment!
