AUGUST 23 – SOAK THE TRAIL: RUN UNITED COASTAL NC 5K TRAIL RACE SERIES
Enjoy a 5K trail run / walk on Carteret County’s Tideland Trail at the Cedar Point Recreation Area. Don’t fear the summer heat – runners and walkers will have plenty of chances to get misted or soaked along the trail! After the race, hang around for a picnic lunch and fun water activities all included with your registration!
The Run United Coastal NC Trail Series is designed for the runner and the walker – of all ages! These 5K Trail Runs are largely flat and have groomed paths with smooth terrain making them a good cross-over for road runners and walkers to experience trail surfaces. We encourage you to make these trail runs and walks some of your first trail races and most definitely a fun family activity. All 5K participants will receive a t-shirt or other great race swag. Kids are invited too! There will be an approximately 1/10 Mile Kids Fun Run at each race. Kids Fun Runners will get a great cinch bag to carry all their race goodies. With the exception of the Spooky Trail Chase on November 1 which is an untimed race, you can choose whether or not you would like to be chip timed. The 5K trail races are designed for runners 8 years and older, and kids between the ages of 2-7 are invited participate in the Kids Fun Run!
