It's our tenth big 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 Snoopy's in downtown Raleigh, 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.
COVID Update: At present, we are capping the number of registrants at 50 to comply with current outdoor gathering restrictions. If we are able to increase the size of the event, we will do so up to our normal cap of 100 participants. Pre- and post-run, you will be asked to wear a face mask of some type. And while eating hot dogs, please allow some social distancing.
We will meet at Snoopy's Meredith College location (3600 Hillsborough Street) at 2:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon, February 28, for a mandatory safety briefing and then take a group photo. Then we'll run in groups to the Snoopy's downtown location (600 Hillsborough Street), and then on to the East Whitaker Mill Road location (1931 Wake Forest Road), where 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 At each stop, you're entitled to a free hot dog, fries, or a drink!
A map of the overall downhill route is provided here.
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.
