About Race 13.1 Raleigh, NC - Spring

Formerly known as the flagship running event in Raleigh’s annual Midtown Race Series, this race is now part of the Race 13.1 Series, joining seven other half marathons throughout the year in North Carolina and more than 20 cities across the Southeast and Midwest.

The annual Raleigh, NC – Spring will be held in June and will feature a course without the final dreaded hill on Lassiter Mill Road. The half marathon, 10k and 5k event will again start in midtown Raleigh’s premier shopping and dining destiation, North Hills, and will now feature a lap around the beautiful Shelley Lake as well as an out-and-back portion on the shaded Crabtree Creek Greenway before finishing back in North Hills, where returning runners will be quick to note the lack of Lassiter Hill.

Take in a Carolina Hurricanes game, visit the North Carolina Museum of Art, and enjoy a variety of amenities at North Hills, located in the heart of midtown Raleigh. North Hills is home to hotels, premier dining establishments, high-end boutiques, department stores, cafes, spas, and bars. Amenities and plenty of parking are conveniently located next to the start and finish line.


The course will include a lap around beautiful Shelley Lake. The rest of the course will run a loop through some of the neighborhoods between North Hills and Shelley Lake as well as an out and back portion on the shaded Crabtree Creek Greenway trail.

The trail is part of a system of trails known as the Raleigh Greenway System, which is expected to grow to more than 100 miles of trails throughout this part of the state in the next few years.

The Crabtree Creek Greenway trail features paved, flat surfaces throughout, taking runners through a combination of neighborhoods and off-the-beaten-path parks and forests. The portion of the greenway trail used in the spring race will primarily be between Shelley Lake and Crabtree Valley Mall, with a small stretch running just west of Creedmoor Road.
