Tarheel 10 Miler – A North Carolina Classic

Image

Hard to to believe, but I have never run this race before.  As April draws near, and the race numbers go through the roof, the talk of the town is the Tarheel Ten Miler.

This race, which has an extremely tough uphill finish, and finish line in the Tarheel stadium, is a must around these parts.  I’ve never done it, but this year will be different.  Having earned an entry as a result of pacing at an event last Fall, I finally have the chance to run this epic race.

Thousands of runners will line up to run this April.  It will be my first ever attempt at a ten mile race.  Guess what?  Instant PR!

This race isn’t only for Carolina fans though.  You can chose to crash the party, and wear your own college colors, as I’m sure many, many runners will be doing.  I think that since my son will be going to State in the Fall for his freshman year, that I should wear Wolfpack red.  I’ll have to ask him for some help to show off his school colors.

Check out the awesome bling for running this race!

Even though I’m not a Carolina fan, I will treasure this medal.  It’s just so unique and different.  Looking forward to this race, another great local event.

  1. Got a little poem for you…surely you’ve heard it before:

    Duke is puke;
    Wake if fake.
    The team I hate
    Is NC State.
    Can’t get to heaven in a red canoe,
    God’s favorite color is Carolina Blue!

    When the boys and I moved to NC from Texas, they learned that from school friends the first week we were there! LOL

    Enjoy the race!
