Overview

Come help carry the water! Everyone is invited to bring the water container of choice. Run/walk halfway. Fill it up. And, carry it back. Once across the finish line empty it into a common pool for corporate sponsorship. All proceeds provide clean water projects in India. Did you know 900,000 people a year die in India from drinking unclean water?

In its second year in 2018, over 200 runners and walkers signed up for this event. Christopher Simmons led all finishers in 18:36.  Emily Branch was the fastest woman in the field with a 22:26 clocking. 

For the past two years​, the has been held at Dorothea Dix in Raleigh, but this year it will be moving to Morrisville at a location yet to be determined.

​The entry fee for the race is $15 through March 23, $20 up to and including August 1, $25 through September 1, $30 from September 2 to September 20, and $40 on race day.  The fee includes a t-shirt, guaranteed to all those paid registrations by 9/1.  After that date, shirts will be given out “as available.”
