Bring the Whole Family!

The Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce hosted its 14th Annual Run the Quay road race on June 3rd, featuring a 5K, a 10K, a 15Quay Challenge (combining the 5K and 10K times), and a Children’s Fun Run! This quartet 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.

Next year’s event will be on Saturday, June 2nd and will again 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 5th Annual Children’s Fun Run will begin at 9:30 am. Registration is already open for the 2018 event using the following button:
