First Annual LBD 5k: Lace Up to Bring Lewy Down!

June 10, 2017 9:00 am at WakeMed Soccer Park

Join us as we lace up our running and walking shoes to bring Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) down.  LBD is the second most common form of degenerative dementia, affecting more than 1.4 million individuals in the United States.  Despite this, many people have never heard of the disease.  This race aims to raise awareness and funds for LBDA, Inc. so that its research may one day find a cure and in the future we will never hear of Lewy Body Dementia again!

Those who register by May 29, 2017 are guaranteed a free T-shirt.
Chip timing provided by Bull City Running Co.

Occoneechee Speedway 5K –

Today saw great weather and a great venue for the inaugural Occoneechee Speedway 5K Race in support of Scout Troop 328.

The course ran around the historic Occoneechee Speedway track and then took in a mixture of paved and single track trail before finishing on the start/finish straight.

There were historic race cars around the grounds and along the start/finish straight revving their engines for the start of the race. Awesome sound, great start to the race.

HRC members had a great time and are looking forward to next year!
