Battle at the Border!
Indigo Farms Market, Calabash, NC
Run with the WRRC at the 4th annual Battle At The Border!
Saturday, July 23, 2016 8:30 AM at Indigo Farms Market, Calabash, NC
Cross country style event between the Wilmington Roadrunners and the Grand Strand Running Club at Indigo Farms on the Border of North and South Carolina held on the third Saturday in July. The course is a little over 4 miles and takes you through rugged fields, wooded trails, a bridge, and rocky roads. The course is mostly shaded along the way and marked with directional signs, bright tape, and volunteers from each club.
Because it is a working farm along the course you will see lots of trees, lily pond, beehives, crops, chickens, pigs, and maybe a snake or two. The event was introduced in 2013 with the Grand Strand Running Club winning the inaugural event and Wilmington Roadrunners winning in 2014 and 2015.
Each runner receives a numbered Popsicle stick as they cross the finish line, with the men and women scored separately counting an equal number of runners for each gender from each team. To determine the final score the scores for both genders for each team are then added together and the lowest score is the winning team.
The format means that every runner's contribution matters in the final tally. You can be the difference as the club competes to take the winner's trophy back to Wilmington for the third year straight.
It is a friendly competition enjoyed by both running clubs. Register HERE now, its FREE!
New 2016 WRRC singlets will be available for pickup at the event for $10. The club singlets are available in the usual sizes and will be dished out on first-come, first-serve basis, so get to the event early to be sure you get your preferred size. If you don't want to have to lug along $10 for yours, you can prepay before the event when you register online HERE.
Note: If you pay in advance that is greatly appreciated, but please understand you still need to get to the event in order to have the best chance of collecting one in your preferred size. If you don't make it, there is a chance you might have to accept one in a size different than your ideal fit.
SEE YOU THERE!
