A holiday-themed half marathon, 10k and 5k race. Durham's course will be updated slightly from the 2015 event to accomodate the larger race size expected in 2016. The event is presented by Race 13.1, the Premier Half Marathon Series, and will begin and finish at the Northgate Mall Sears lot on Guess Road and feature plenty of holiday cheer including jingle bells, drumlines, and festive music.
Holiday Kids Fun Run at 6:30am before the race! The event is free with a suggested donation of $5 to charity partner, Heart 2 Heart Collaborative, or an unused toy that will be donated to Duke Children's Hospital patients. Kids will run a one-half mile loop through the race site with a visit from Santa at the finish line, bounce house fun, and face painting.
