About This Activity

The inaugural Not so Normal 5K + Weekend race will take place Sunday, Sept. 14 with an official start time of 8 a.m.! Beginning and ending at 300 East Main Street in Carrboro, the Not So Normal 5K isn’t quite a 5K – we’ve shortened the course to 2.95 miles to make it flatter and a little easier. Why? Because this isn’t normal, it’s extraordinary!

Families are invited to run or walk and strollers are welcome on the course. Registration is just $25, and unlike other races, 100 percent of proceeds go directly to charity. Children 8 years old and under can participate for free and also enjoy kids' races, obstacles, face painting and tons of family-fun activities.

Register now here.

Participants are asked to bring one book for Book Harvest and/or two canned goods for local food distribution organizations, TABLE and PORCH.

Why limit the fun to just one day?! The Not So Normal 5K + Weekend also includes family-friendly events throughout the weekend, Sept. 12-14. The three days will be full of fundraising for local nonprofits, enjoying time in the community, getting a little exercise and enjoying a great concert with the Frankie Ballard Live concert Presented by 94.7 QDR and the Not So Normal 5K.
