Registration open for City of Oaks Marathon

Posted September 18, 2013

At the end of her 26 miles, a marathon runner composes herself.

— Registration is now open for the Raleigh City of Oaks Marathon and the Rex Healthcare Half Marathon. 

The races are Sunday, Nov. 3 in Raleigh. Last year's event sold out, so you might want to register early to get a spot! They are expecting more than 6,000 racers this year. 

Marathon registration is $90 and half marathon is $80. The Old Reliable 10K is $35 and the marathon relay is $225. Children have their own "marathon mile" and registration is $15 for that. All prices (except for the children's marathon) go up after Oct. 31. 

The 10K (6.2 miles) is open to strollers and baby joggers.

The marathon, half marathon, relay and kids' marathon start and finish at the same spot - the NC State Bell Tower on Hillsborough Street. 

The 10K starts at the bell tower and finishes on Clark Street next to Cameron Village.

There will be a post-race festival nearby featuring live music from Catching Fire, runner photos, a children’s play area with face painting, a Runner Beer Garden and lots of carb rich food for the runners like bread, doughnuts, hot chicken noodle soup and fresh warm pizza.

Find out more about the race, including volunteer opportunities, and register at the race website.
