About This Activity

This year’s BIG DAY will offer activities for all ages. With no football games on the radar and a beautiful October 3rd day, come out and register at 1:00 and participate in the timed 5K run or walk, or grab your bike for the 1.5 mile race But don’t hang up your shoes there, stay and enjoy in the assortment of sweet and savory food trucks and a cold beverage while you listen to a live performance of last year’s overwhelming crowd favorite, Skinny Bag of Sugar, play a wide range of tunes on the Southern Village lawn into the evening hours. Maybe a little something to keep the heart rate up? Bid on some very exciting auction items MCed by the voice of the Tar Heels, Eric Montross, or for the first time climb aboard the bungee trampoline, or partake in these fan favorites: 2 large inflatables, slam dunk basketball, a gaming truck, face painting and fairy hair. So SAVE THE DATE, and come run and have fun while raising money for a very important and needed cause!

Your ticket includes the chipped 5K run, family bike race and all the festival activities as well as a t-shirt. Food and drinks will be available for purchase from a range of vendors.  The race consists of a 1.56 mile bike race for families and a chipped 5K for all ages.

NEW THIS YEAR! Support the Super Cooper Little Red Wagon Foundation virtually! Do you have friends, family, and acquaintances that like to run but can’t join us in Chapel Hill for the race?
