Sprint and Beginner Courses with Umstead Coalition Walk/Run/Bike

Filed under: Uncategorized by admin on April 13th, 2011

We will have a special SPRINT and BEGINNERS event at Umstead park on SATURDAY, April 16, 2011. This event is in conjunction with Umstead Coalition Walk/Run/Bike festival. All proceeds from this even will go to the Umstead Coalition.


Where: A private farm on Reedy Creek Road next to Umstead Park Trenton Road entrance. Look for the BOK tent, Start / Finish / Registration will be under the tent.

Parking:  is very limited, so please carpool!
There is a possibility to park close to Schenck Forrest and walk to the start, but do not park in private properties or along the roads.

When: please, arrive either before 9am or after 10:30. You will NOT be able to park if you arrive between 9:00-10:30 because Bike/Walk/Run starts during this time and all roads will be closed.


We will have two Sprint courses, White and Yellow.  Everyone is welcome. The beginners class will be taught throughout the event in regular intervals.

If you come with a group, please follow the group pre-registration procedures and you MUST carpool!

The latest start allowed is 11:30 and everybody must finish by 12:30 PM. If you are not back by 12:30, you may have big troubles with the organizers of Walk / Bike /Run, Park rangers, BOK and the parking lot (farm) owner.

Despite short courses we will need a lot of help organizing this event. If you want to volunteer, show up at 7am and help with setting up the tables, directing traffic, our registration and promotion of the sport in general by talking to park visitors and random guests. Teaching novices will also be appreciated.

If you have any questions, please call me 919-624-4631
