Almost a Record

We can’t believe it – we adopted 33 cats LAST Week! This is just one less than our record for a non-event week/day. Thank you to everyone who gave these kitties a home! Want to try and help us break our record? Meet the cats waiting for you.

The city of Raleigh requires course monitors to be 21 years of age. The course monitors will meet at 8:45 am on race morning at the intersection of Johnson and West St. behind the Raleigh Beer Garden. At that time everyone will receive a map with their assigned position along the course as well as a bright yellow safety vest. After a safety talk with Raleigh Police Department, the volunteers will drive or walk to their assigned position. Course monitors will make sure cars do not turn on the course as well as contact the race committee if a participant is in need of medical assistance. Each will also have a course map and will help cars navigate around the closed roads. You will stay at your assigned position until the trail police car relieves you of your position. We will have a volunteer walk in front of the police car and collect the reflective vests.
