The Holly Springs Half Marathon brings you race distances of half marathon, 10k & 5k. Whether you are a seasoned runner or hoping to complete your first distance race, you’ll absolutely love these course options. It offers a little bit of everything…from fast flats to rolling hills…from open roads to greenways and trails.....the Holly Springs Half Marathon, 10k & 5k races introduces runners to the best that our town has to offer.
All 3 races starting from Ting Park, the Holly Springs Salamanders’ baseball stadium, located at the North Main Athletic Complex. Runners will begin their journey just outside the stadium and proceed to and through the quaint neighborhoods of Bridgewater, Windcrest, and into Sunset Ridge. The 3 races begin to split with the 5k having a turnaround on Crossway Lane in Sunset Ridge and back to Ting Park.
The 10k filters into the fast canopy-covered greenway through both Veterans & Jones parks and down to S. Main St for a turn around near Womble Park. The Half Marathon Runners will continue downtown on Main Street by Town Hall, winding through the ball fields of Womble Park and down the time-banking (ie fast!) Carl Dean greenway to the Bass Lake Park entrance. There will be no time to stop to feed the ducks as you run 2 miles around Bass Lake’s mulch trail before jumping back onto the challenging Sugg Farm trail to make your way back towards Womble Park. From here, runners backtrack up S. Main Street, Jones & Veterans parks, and eventually finishing on a gentle downhill back towards the Salamanders’ stadium (with a short but challenging uphill finish!).
