We are looking forward to the 15th Annual North Hills 5K!

How to Race:

We were so thankful for the ability to continue on with our race virtually last year but we know everyone missed the hills, the smiling faces, the competition, the fellowship, the outreach, and everything else that we’ve grown to love from the North Hill 5K! We are thrilled to be back in-person on September 11th, 2021 for the 15th Annual North Hills 5K benefiting BackPack Buddies through North Raleigh Ministries.

Why Race:

Proceeds from the race go to support the Backpack Buddies program through North Raleigh Ministries.  North Raleigh Ministries strives to meet the needs of families and individuals with emergency situations who live in North Raleigh. Through the Backpack Buddies program, North Raleigh Ministries helps combat food insecurity experienced by children in our local schools.

Race History:

Now in its 15th year, this race raised over $46,000 for Backpack Buddies through our virtual format last year. Franklin Sterling finished 1st overall in the 5K race with a time of 18:38, while Kristy Smith was the top female with a 22:57 clocking.

Sam Montclair hold's the course record at 16:00 in 2018.
Betty Geiger holds the women’s course mark of 18:25 set in 2011.
