Thank you to all the attendees, volunteers, vendors, exhibitors and musicians for the 2023 Walk/Run/Bike for Umstead! View the 2023 race results for the 4-mile run. Thanks to Carolina Godiva Track Club for doing the timing.
Enjoy a great day on park trails with a 4-mile walk/run or 4, 7 or 13-mile bike ride. Our annual event includes runners, walkers, bikers, babies in strollers and pets on leashes. There are children's activities, live music, a silent auction, door prizes, craft vendors, native plant sale, food truck and more. All funds raised are used for the benefit of Umstead State Park. Event location: Pasture at 6000 Reedy Creek Road, Raleigh, NC 27607.
The bike ride starts at 9:30am. Triangle Off-Road Cyclists (TORC) will provide guided rides within the Park. This is not a race and you must provide your own bike. Trails are gravel, so mountain or hybrid bikes are recommended. Helmets are required. The number of participants on the bike rides are capped at 100 for trail safety.VIEW ROUTES
The walk/run starts at 9:45am. Official race timing for the 4-mile race will be provided by Carolina Godiva Track Club for 1 hour. Self-timing will continue until 1.5 hours after walk/run start.
