To Benefit The Wakefield Schools Foundation 

April 15th, 2023

While the flowers are blooming and the weather is perfect……Come out and be a part of this inaugural event!

The first ever half marathon to run through down town Wake Forest and most of the sites of this area's rich history. 

What makes this 13.1 course different from others is its constant change of scenery. One minute you are in beautiful downtown Wake Forest, and then you are running past various neighborhoods representing the different generations of growth this area has seen. Next thing you know, you are exploring Joyner Park and all its beauty while running through the natural topography of this secret gem. Now you are halfway to the finish line, and you find yourself in the streets of the historic district. Homes that have been around for over 100 years are an attraction all of their own. It's easy to forget your running if you think about Wake Forest University and how this course winds you through the sites of this university's original location here in Wake Forest. Finally, you hear the crowd, the music and the smell of local restaurants. You are back down town crossing the finish line and collecting your prize for completing this fantastic course. 

This will be an event that will have running clubs talking. If you have been looking for a half marathon to be your first, then look no further. Our friends who are experienced runners will appreciate this course and the experience that FSSeries bring to the events we produce.
