It's our thirteenthbig year! Once again, Mr. Snoopy is welcoming the North Carolina Roadrunners Club for a fun, relaxed five-mile run from Snoopy's next to Meredith College to to Snoopy's on East Whitaker Mill Road, with optional free hot dogs at each stop! This social run is a fundraiser for Mr. Snoopy's favorite charity, the SPCA of Wake County. Sadly, Snoopy's downtown is no more, but we will honor that former location by keeping it on the route.
We will meet at Snoopy's Meredith College location (3600 Hillsborough Street) at 2:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon, February 25, for a mandatory safety briefing and then take a group photo. Then we'll run in groups to the Snoopy's East Whitaker Mill Road location (1931 Wake Forest Road). Both before we run and after, you're entitled to a free hot dog, fries, or a drink! After the run, we will try to do door prizes by 4:30 p.m. and take one more group photo as we present Mr. Snoopy with the large novelty check Costumes are encouraged!
A map of the overall downhill route is provided here.
As always, we remember NCRC member Susan Butler Karnatz, a very talented runner who was tragically lost while running on the Neuse River Trail in October 2022. Sue participated in the Snoopy's run with her family mulitple times and was also a big proponent of animal adoptions. We encourage you to #RunForSue.
Your $10 donation goes to SPCA of Wake County. This is our token of thanks for Mr. Snoopy and his team for hosting the NCRC and providing the great hot dogs! Additional donations from the runners are greatly appreciated, of course!
More details will be e-mailed to participants as we get closer to the event.
