About This Activity

Join us for the third annual Extra Mile 5K. The Extra Mile Scholarship run and walk will be held this year at Mocksville Elementary School/Rich Park in Mocksville, North Carolina on April 13th. The event is held to provide a scholarship for local athletes to honor the memory and legacy of Daric Beiter who was a track and cross country coach at Davie High 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 27th.  The registration fee will increase to $30.00 on March 28th.  Online registration will continue through April 9th.  All types (competitive, intermediate, beginners) of participants are encouraged to sign up.
