We encourage everyone to join us at our events. If you want to walk the course, that's great. However, if the trailing police car passes you, you must follow normal pedestrian rules -- move to the sidewalk or side of the road. Our timing service tries to capture the time for everyone who crosses the finish line, so even if the police close the course, you should receive a finish time.
Baby strollers/joggers are permitted, but for the safety of all participants please start at the back.
Net proceeds from our races are distributed to our Community Partners. Since the inception of Le Tour de Carrboro in 2005, we have donated nearly $390,000 to our community!
For our 2015 Community Partners, we distributed a record $50,000!
