Eastern NC Runners (Raleigh, Greenville, Wilson, etc)

Not sure if this is the right forum, but here goes. 

We are excited to be adding a new race in my home town (Rocky Mount, NC) this December called the Tar River Half Marathon.

The course begins by winding through the shady streets of some of Rocky Mount’s oldest and most scenic neighborhoods. Runners will pass by charming homes, the City Lake fountain, Sunset Park, and even the local Farmers Market before the course enters into the city’s green ways.

The greenways are shaded and paved. For the most part you run beside and over the Tar River on the trail portion. We have limited traffic control in Rocky Mount, but are lucky to have a great greenway so we could still create a 13.1 mile route.

The race is on December 8th. This is a great chance to take advantage of your fall marathon training and get in another race. It is low cost, easily reached from most NC cities. It is also only 1 hour and 45 minutes down I-95 from Richmond.
