Filed under: Latest News by Joseph on October 30th, 2021

Our next event is on Sunday November 7th 2021 and is open to 25 of our experienced runners. As always all runners must pre-register on our website. We offer four start slots on the half hour starting at noon; 12:30pm, 1:00pm and 1:30pm. Courses close at 3:00pm, so if you feel like you need a lot of time, consider signing up for an earlier time.  Please register before Friday Nov 5th at 6:00pm to make sure everyone gets a map. We will offer three courses:

Brown: 3.7 km, Green: 5.6 km, Red: 6.6 km 

Directions and parking to Umstead West:

The park entrance is on Old Reedy Creek Rd (not the main entrance). 35.844492, -78.777911

Cross I-40 and the road will become dirt road. Continue for another half mile and park on the right side of the road. Be mindful of our neighbors and do not park in front of the residences or in the turn-around area near the end of the road!

No Facilities

There are no bathrooms and no running water at this location. The closest bathroom is at the Lake Crabtree parking lot by Old Reedy Creek Road Trailhead Parking just before crossing over I-40. Bring your own water.

Awesome map

The map was updated in 2019 and is amazing! This area is under threat from the possible expansion of the quarry and the building of a fence along the park/airport boundary. To help stop these destructive projects contact the Umstead Coalition.
