Come join us for Westerwood neighborhood’s 2nd annual 5k! Start and finish at the historic Double Oaks Bed & Breakfast. The 5k course rolls through the historic Westerwood neighborhood streets and part of the greenway along Buffalo Creek. Run or walk any time beginning on Tuesday, October 27 at 5:00 am and ending by Saturday, November 7 at 5:00 pm.

You have two great race options for 2020:

1) 5k – Westerwood 5k Course: Those interested in competing for overall, age group, and team awards can use the free RaceJoy app to run or walk the Westerwood 5k course. It’s easy to record with your smart phone while you run/walk, getting cues for the course as you go. And when finished, just upload official results. You can even race multiple times during the twelve days the race is open to try and improve your time. (But remember, only your latest results will be saved and listed.)

2) 5k – Race Anywhere: Those who are out of town can opt for the virtual race, where you can participate from anywhere! To receive your t-shirt and bib, a mailed packet option is available for a small fee.

All registrants are invited to packet pickup on Sunday afternoon, October 25 and an awards party at Double Oaks on Sunday afternoon, November 8. If it is not possible to gather by then, we will shift to a curbside awards pickup. Stay tuned for raffle prizes, awards for best Halloween costume during the event, and ways to help our local food banks! New for our 2020 race, a Top Dog 5k category. Run with your dog on the course for a chance to win fastest dog!

At checkout, you’ll have a chance to support two non-profits in Greensboro, Backpack Beginnings and Greensboro Urban Ministry. 2020 has been a tough year with a greater need than ever for food pantries. Let’s give them support to continue their missions in our community.

Register today and invite your family and friends to join you for this new neighborhood tradition! Check out this video preview of the designated course!
