Second Empire 5K Classic

In 2018 a crowd of over 400 runners and walkers turned out for this event in North Raleigh.  Christian Daniel (16:51) was the overall winner.  Erin Taylor was the fastest female in the field, finishing in 19:06.  Taylor also holds the women’s course record of 18:16 which she ran in 2017.  Evan Darm holds the men’s course record of 16:19, also set in 2017..

Once again the race will start and finish at Trinity Academy of Raleigh at 10224 Baileywick Road in North Raleigh and will be run on an out-and-back course through the picturesque Wildwood Green golf community.

The entry fees are $25 for the 5K if received on or before April 13th, $30 from April 14th to April 26th and $35 on race day.  For the 1-mile run, the entry fees are $15 (on or before April 13th) and $20 after April 13th up to and including race day, and the fee for the Kid’s Dash is $5 with no late fees.

A short sleeve shirt is included with the entry fee in each of the 3 races (5K, One Mile and Kids Dash) if registered on or before April 13th.  After this date, we will do our best to provide all entries a shirt, but cannot guarantee it.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Trinity Academy of Raleigh.
