Welcome to the 18th annual Run at the Rock! Since 2005, trail runners from across the region have challenged themselves on the beautiful and well-maintained trails of Cedarock Park. Run 5K, 10K, or Half Marathon on awesome courses that include twisty single-track and smooth, flowing equestrian trails. Cedarock Park is located in Burlington, NC and is an easy drive from Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem. We can't wait to see everyone in December for an awesome day of trail running action.
Cedarock Park has 12 miles of awesome single-track and equestrian trails. Each of the 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon courses start with .5 miles of wide road and paved trail before hitting the single-track trails. After this beginning section, athletes run along a combination of forested single-track and wide equestrian trails. There are plenty of passing opportunities spread throughout. We would categorize these trails as minimally technical, with a few root and rock filled sections and several punchy hill climbs. In terms of elevation gain, the one-loop 5K and 10k courses offer 227' and 530' of gain, respectively. The two-loop Half Marathon course has 998' of gain.
