12 Hours of Holiday Miles - For a GREAT Cause

12 Hours of Holiday Miles - For a GREAT Cause
2019 here we come!! The race, again, will be a 100% NOT FOR PROFIT event. Proceeds from the events held will go directly to The Dunn Police Athletic and Activities League, and The Dunn Rotary Club! This is a low cost event in order to allow individuals to make a donation if they so choose (not required for entry)

The 12 hour race draws great ultra runners from across the country. The 6 hour event grew by 20% from 2018 to 2019 and the 3 hour endurance run drew some super fast participants in 2018. We anticipate each event to grow again in 2019

These endurance runs will be on a 5 mile (each way) 10 mile per lap down and back course that is composed of crushed gravel towpath. The course is Dunn's rails to trails path. This trail will challenge any runner, it is a beginner's trail, but the length and the three mini hills can get to you in the latter hours.
In the 12 hour, for 10 hours you will run to Dunn and back, the final 2 hours you will do 1/2 mile repeats (1 mile round trip) to the cones and back.
The 6 hour will do 4 hours to Dunn and back, the final 2 hours you will do 1 mile round trips to the cones and back.
The 3 hour will do 1 full round trip to Dunn, then complete 1 mile round trips until time is expired.

Registrations received 30 days or less in advance of event date are not guaranteed the shirt size they registered for.
All participants will receive a custom race shirt, and a finishers award. Prizes for 1,2,3 in each event.
Costumes, Ugly sweaters, TONS of food, beer and so much more!

Course Overview

"The Dunn-Erwin Rail Trail is a unique path that connects the two downtown areas of the communities while allowing the user to stroll through farmlands, beside cotton fields and across wetlands. The relaxed 5 mile trail of crushed stone is perfect for the casual walker, biker or family and is also used by serious runners because of its length and flat, well maintained surface. Dogs on leashes are welcome, but horses and ATVs are not permitted. The trail is clearly marked and easy to follow, and although the trail does intersect streets on multiple occasions, the crossings are well marked and safe. At multiple points on the path, there are informative signs with a map as well as historical points of interest and attractions along the trail. If you are interested in bringing the family and kids, there is plenty to explore in the two towns once you have traveled the trail. From Noah’s Landing, a 12 acre outdoor animal center, to historic sites likes Averasboro Civil War Battlefield and Museum; there is something to please everyone, young and old."
