About This Activity

Join us for the 5th annual Extra Mile 5K. This year's event will again be held at Mocksville Elementary School/Rich Park in Mocksville, North Carolina on April 9th. The purpose of this event is to raise funds toward a scholarship for Davie High School Track and Cross Country athletes that honors the memory and legacy of Daric Beiter who was a track and cross country coach at the school. Coach Beiter encouraged everyone to go the "Extra Mile" in all of life's endeavors. The race and walk will both begin at 9:00 AM followed by age group awards.  5K Runners will start first, followed by walkers.  Please note that the 1.2 mile walk will not be timed, but those participants receive t-shirts and goody bags with their registration fee.  Walkers must walk on the sidewalks along Main Street.

T-shirts are only guaranteed to participants that register before March 25th.  The registration fee will increase by $10 on March 25th.  Online registration will continue through April 6th.  All types (competitive, intermediate, beginners) of participants are encouraged to sign up.

Our course is a Certified 5K course and we use chip timing for our race.  Awards will be given to the top 3 finishers for both male and female 5K finishers in the following age groups: 6-under, 7-10, 11-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+.  Top 3 overall winners for male and female will receive a special prize from our platinum sponsor Omega Sports!

Prices are $25.00 for adults and $20.00 for students (K-12).  Deadline to register in order to guarantee a t-shirt is March 25th.  All registration prices (including student rate) will go up $10.00 after March 25th.  Online registration ends April 6th.  We will accept registrations at packet pickup and race morning up until 8:30am.
