About This Activity

The 6th Annual Skinny Turkey Half Marathon will start at 7:30am and finish at Wakefield High School in North Raleigh.  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. This year the road race is funding a new video currently being produced on the topic of "teens and teenage drug use." 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.
