In it's first year this grassroots event was open to only 75 runners from the Fire Department community but this year its open to the public! Proceeds from this year's race will also go to help support Children's Flight of Hope.
Runners can pick to race a full marathon, half-marathon, or 10K course. They can even share the work with their friends and run as a relay! The course winds through greenways and streets alike. The course not only visits almost every Cary fire station you'll also get to actually run through several of the fire station truck bays. All fire stations will act as both rest and accountability stops.
