Race Registration and Packet Pickup Location
The race headquarters is Inside-Out Sports located at 2002 Grisdale Lane in Cary. The race starts and finishes on Rainbrook Drive across Cary Parkway about 1/4 mile from the store.
Getting to the Event Start
The most direct route to the event start from Inside-Out Sports is walking across the parking lot and using the stairs near Der Biergarten (formerly Dean’s Bar&Grill) up to the sidewalk on James Jackson Avenue. The sidewalk will take you to the crossing at Cary Parkway that will be controlled with a police officer.
Those with wheelchairs or strollers
should follow the sidewalk behind Inside-Out Sports (on Grisdale Lane) to access James Jackson Avenue while avoiding the stairs out of the parking lot.
The map below shows the route from Inside-Out Sports to the event start/finish. The red is the route with stairs. The yellow shows the wheelchair/stroller accessible variation of the route.
