Raleigh',s Finest 5k
Raleigh&#39,s Finest 5k: race description
Raleigh's FINEST 5K Run!
Come make our 5th annual event bigger and better!
The course is a USATF Certified 5k (3.1 mile) course. As everyone knows, every Fire Fighter likes a challenge and this course is no exception. The first mile includes some rolling hills as it wanders through the Boylan Heights area, but as the course turns right onto W. Hargett street it flattens out for the final push to the end. A short climb passing by the NCFFF memorial park and it's all downhill to the finish line.
Awards will be given to the top three in both male and female age groups:
0-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65+
In addition, a separate category will be offered for the top three male and female Fire Fighters. Make sure you select this category if it applies.
An aid station will be setup at the midway point on the course offering the usual selection of electrolyte drinks, water and snacks. At the finish line food will be available for all registered participants.
