Briar Chapel results are posted!

Thanks to everyone who came out and raced, volunteered and cheered on the kids.  We had 180 finishers, many great performances and some incredible sportsmanship.  Kudos to Kaleb Atkins for giving his medal to our final finisher after we ran out of medals with 4 kids left to finish!  If your child did not receive a medal, one will be mailed this week.

No pre-race clinic/course walk-through for Briar Chapel

Our apologies for any confusion, but there will NOT be a pre-race clinic or course walkthrough on Saturday before the Briar Chapel race.  Will WILL have one for Cary and registration is now open.

Briar Chapel this Sunday!

Online registration for the Briar Chapel race has closed. Those who have registered will receive a pre-email with important information either Thursday or Friday.  There are 25 spots remaining.  If you plan to register, please arrive at packet pickup as close to 3pm as possible on Saturday (at Fleet Feet Durham).  There is no race day registration.  Cash or check only.

Note that the bike course has changed.  Construction along Tobacco Farm Road created too many hazards that we felt were unsafe so the course will be primarily on Briar Chapel Parkway.   The road will be open to traffic but the course will coned off and police officers will be at all intersections.  Volunteers will also be stationed along the course.

There are a limited number of parking spaces in the lot at the pool.  Parking is permitted along the neighborhood streets around the pool but please be respectful of residents.  *PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON BRIAR CHAPEL PARKWAY OR GREAT RIDGE BLVD OR YOU WILL BE TOWED!  IF YOU PARK ON SERENITY HILL CIRCLE, PLEASE PARK ON THE RIGHT SIDE ONLY.*
