Parking and Start/Finish Location
Closest Address: 301 Stinson Avenue, Holly Springs, NC 27540
Parking: Because we will be sharing this park with other members of the community, it would be ideal for runners to carpool and to utilize these other parking areas so we aren't monopolizing the space.

- 25 Laps
- Start at the picnic shelter and run figure-8 around the park
- The direction which you run does not matter; feel free to switch it up.
- Because the nature of running laps creates a margin of error, runners will likely have distances between 26.25 miles and 27 miles if they run with GPS devices. Erring on the side of caution, we like to make these races a little longer.
Where Your Entry Fee Goes (Our Expenses)
*Revenue for this year was (25 X $40) + 10 = $1,010
Net Losses are Always (and intentionally) Recorded for this Event (2017 Net Loss = $251.88 with potentially a few minor expenses remaining). In keeping with a general theme of being "the opposite" of the bigger races, our goal is to lose money rather than to make money for the sake of making money.
