The Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce is excited to offer its 10th Annual Run the Quay road race, which this year includes an INAUGURAL 10K race! This trio of races is held in historic downtown Fuquay-Varina, and both the 5K and 10K wind their way through charming neighborhoods in the southern tip of Wake County.
This year’s event will be on Saturday, June 7th and will begin at the Fuquay-Varina Presbyterian Church on Ennis Street. The 10K will begin at 7:00 am, the 5K will begin at 8:30 am, and the 3rd Annual Children’s Fun Run will begin at 9:30 am.
Runners will be able to pick up their race packets on Friday, June 6th from 4:00-7:00 pm at the Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce (121 N. Main Street). Walk-ins are welcome, but pre-registration is highly recommended.
The race offers a wheelchair division, as well as a generous number of children’s divisions. The Fuquay-Varina Pediatrics’ Children’s Fun Run will offer two options—a 1-mile run and a 100-yard dash. This less competitive event will take place on an athletic field next to the Run the Quay venue and will be tailored to children ages toddler-10.
Online registration is open for all three events ~ go to www.sportoften.com (search “Quay”).
Sponsorships for all three races are also still available. Those interested in sponsoring should contact Lynanne Fowle.
This year’s race will again feature vendor booths in our Race Expo. Organizations can rent a 10×10 space for $100 and sell food and/or merchandise or hand out information to race participants and their families. With the new race this year, we anticipate over 800 registrants and their families will attend. Click on the link below to sign up for a booth space in the Race Expo, and then come back to this screen to “Proceed to Checkout” to complete the process.
With the addition of our challenging 10K course with 35 turns, we are going to need LOTS more volunteers this year! If you can donate some time for this great event, please click on the link below to sign up for one or more positions on June 6th or 7th. Thank you!
