The NCRC Classic Half-Marathon & 10K Races are now in their 23rd year and considered to be two of the Triangle area’s premier distance races.
In 2018 over 500 runners registered for one of the two events. Bhushan Suresh (1:20:30) and Kirsten Davis (1:34:33) took top honors in the half-marathon while Edwin Kibowen (34:34) and Brenda Liming (39:30) were the top finishers in the 10K.
Both the 10K and half-marathon have USATF certified “out-and-back” courses that start on paved road, transition through crushed-gravel and the hard-packed bridle trails of Umstead State Park, and finish on pavement. Both the 10K and 13.1 courses officially close at 10:30 a.m.
