Experience one of North Carolina’s most beautiful parks while you and your family walk and run your first 5K at Dorothea Dix Park. A 1-mile event is also available. This fun family event features special family pricing and focuses on building happy and healthy families which makes it one of the top things to do in Raleigh!

Registration includes a soft cotton t-shirt you love to wear before, during or even after the race as well as a Pinwheel Temporary Tattoo as part of the Pinwheels for Prevention® national effort to raise awareness for child abuse prevention efforts. PLEASE NOTE: The registration deadline to receive a t-shirt has passed but, a limited number of shirts have been ordered. Sign up now and come to Pre-Race Packet Pick-Up for an opportunity to get a cool shirt!  The race starts at 11:00, but feel free to come earlier as festivities begin at 10:30.

Online Registration closes Wednesday, October 23rd.

Both 5K and 1-Mile courses take place on the beautiful Dorothea Dix Park and feature downhill finishes.

In addition to the race, we will be celebrating PCANC's 40th year of strengthening families.  Lots of festivities, food, and fun planned for the day!

Pre-Race Packet Pick-Up

We have two options for packet pick-up this year!!!  

Thursday, October 24th
Prevent Child Abuse NC Office - office is tricky to find, look for the table outside in front of the building
3000 Aerial Center Parkway/Suite 180
Pick-Up Hours:  8:00 am to 1 pm

Friday, October 25th
Fleet Feet Raleigh
3532 Wade Ave, Raleigh, NC 27607
Pick-Up Hours:  4:00-7:00 pm

If you are able, it will be much easier to plan on picking up your packet during these two options rather than on race day.  Late registration is available at Fleet Feet and PCANC, accepting check and cash only.  Late registrants, however, are not guaranteed a t-shirt as our supplies will be limited.

The race packet includes bib (with timing chip), temporary tattoo, t-shirt (if registered by the October 10 deadline) and other promotional items. 


Race Day Packet Pick-Up

Race Day Packet Pick-Up
October 26th, 9:30am-10:30am, Harvey Hill (Race Site) at Dorothea Dix Park

Runners and walkers may pick up their race packet on race day at the race site from 9:30am - 10:30am. Race packet includes bib (with timing chip), temporary tattoo, t-shirt (if registered by the October 10 deadline) and other promotional items.  We prefer that any late registrations happen at packet pick-up the day before at Fleet Feet, however we will accept cash or check on race day.
