Race Description

The 3rd Annual Skinny Turkey Half Marathon will start and finish at Wakefield High School in North Raleigh. In 2012, 750 participants entered the half marathon and 800 participants entered the 5k. The half marathon course will run through Wakefield Plantation and Wake Falls neighborhood. The course is a rolling design with a few hills that are sure to test fitness. The course is very scenic especially in the Wake Falls neighborhood.

The JUST THINK FIRST 5K Road Race, held each year in the fall, is the major fundraiser for the program.The appeal of the JUST THINK FIRST teaching videos relies largely on the fact that they tell the story of something that happened to real people; rather, real students who attended school at Wakefield High. Besides funding for the video projects, proceeds from the 5K race also pay for speakers and various activities planned during the school year. In addition, scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors in the spring.This year’s JUST THINK FIRST Road Race starts and finishes at the school on Thanksgiving Day with the 5K run beginning at 8:00 am. The entry fee is $25.00; $15.00 for students (must be 18 or younger and have ID). All pre-registered entrants receive a t-shirt if signed up by November 9th, 2013. Race day t-shirts will be given out to race day registrants as long as they last.

The races start and finish at Wakefield High School which is located at 2200 Wakefield Pines Drive, Raleigh, NC 27614.The event will utilize RFID timing with a disposable tag attached to the back of each bib. We used this same system when timing Running Events and the Tobacco Road Marathons.
