The Twelfth Annual  Umstead Marathon is cancelled for Saturday, March  7th, 2015 at 9:00AM EST

 

We are very sorry to report that the marathon to be held March 7th in Umstead State Park is cancelled. I spoke to the Park Ranger and he and the Park Superintendent asked that we cancel the race, based on 
1) Natural resource perspective
2) Safety
The park is in too bad of shape after the recent storms. Having the race could negatively impact the park and any upcoming events. We are very sorry – we (the committee), the volunteers and the sponsors would like to have the race as much as you runners would, but it is out of our hands.

We are having a packet pickup / party on Saturday 3/7 at the big Reedy Creek Shelter at the Umstead State Park Harrison Avenue entrance from 11am – 2pm. From I-40, take the Harrison Avenue exit and travel northeast into the park. We will have your race swag (shirts, socks, glasses, PB bars, lip balm, etc.), Moe’s burritos and door prizes! Please come to the party to pick up your swag.
