Carrboro 10K

Carrboro 10K

The Carrboro 10K is the second race in the 17th annual Le Tour de Carrboro race series. This is our first in-person event after the advent of COVID. Please review the COVID protocol that we will be using. We will NOT require any of our participants to use a mask on the race course. We will email this protocol out to all registered runners the week prior to the race.

The race starts at 8 a.m. at McDougle Middle School, winds through the neighborhoods of Carrboro, and finishes on the McDougle track.

Since the inception of our Le Tour series, we have donated over $560,000 to local non-profit organizations. Come join us on October 2 and support our 2021 Community Partners!

There is a discounted price if you want to sign up for both the Carrboro 10K and the Gallop & Gorge 8K on Thanksgiving morning. Just follow the registration steps to select this option.

Bib Pickup

Registration for this year’s race will be ON-LINE ONLY, through RunSignUp, with on-line registration closing at 9pm on Friday, October 1.

Bib pickup will be available at Fleet Feet Sports in Carrboro on Friday, October 1, 10 am - 6:30 pm, and race day morning at McDougle, 6:30-7:45. Race entries are not transferable, i.e., you cannot give your bib number to someone else.


Please carpool and arrive early for parking.

There are 3 lots in front of McDougle and a fourth lot behind the school (off of Hillsborough, and the lot to use if you are later than 7:50 am, since Old Fayetteville will be closed). There is additional parking available at Hank Anderson Community Park located off of Highway 54.


The race begins in front of McDougle Middle School, winds through downtown Carrboro and its neighborhoods, and finishes on the McDougle track. Here is a link to the race course map.

Kids Races

Due to our concern for the safety of families and unvaccinated children under 12 years old, we will not hold our traditional “FOR THE KIDS” events in 2021.
