It is with mixed emotions that we announce the Sweetheart 5k will discontinue in 2017. After eight successful years (counting the snow year) we could see the registrations continue to decline as more new races were added in North Carolina. We peaked with over 350 runners in 2012 but have dropped finishers each year to follow.

If you are looking for a low cost professionally timed February event, Tar River Timing will be timing the Cupid Run in Knightdale on February 11th. We strongly encourage our loyal Rocky Mount runners to make the short 35 minute drive to enjoy this low cost event.

Registrations are now open for only $20 and include a winter hat, finisher medal & timing bib. The deadline to receive a winter hat is 1/23/17.
