With your ticket purchase, you'll receive an event-branded t-shirt, a DI4W car freshener, and other swag items. Plus, enjoy snacks and refreshments after the race. We will have bag pickup on Tuesday, June 11th at Zin Yoga & Wine (104 Rand Mill Rd, Garner, NC 27529) from 6:00PM to 8:00PM. If you cannot pick up your bag during the above, you can pick it up before the race from 8:00AM - 8:50AM at the Check-In/Registration table. **Please Note: If you sign up after May 17th, we cannot guarantee that you will receive the correct t-shirt size**

  • Non-competitive (untimed)
  • Kids (12 & under) - Kids who wish to race competitively for placement and prizes must purchase a competitive ticket. 

Competitive racers will be grouped by age and gender. Medals will be awarded to top participants in each grouping, and prizes (to be announced) will be given to the top overall finishers. Additionally, we're offering remembrance signs again this year, which will be placed around the race path. Buyers can take their signs home after the race if they wish.

While we adore our furry friends, we kindly request that you leave them at home for the DI4W Legacy Run - 5K event. We want all participants, especially those racing competitively, to have a smooth and focused experience. Your cooperation ensures that everyone can fully enjoy the race day festivities. Thank you for understanding!

5K Race Trail

The race trail will be marked with arrows, markers, and volunteers on race day so it goes as smooth as possible. The yellow arrows on the map show the starting leg, the blue arrows represent the ending leg of the race.

Please note:

  • The turnaround on the South Garner Greenway at White Deer Park will be at the end of the trail where it meets Timber Drive. We will have a volunteer there to direct you to turn around.

  • The beginning of the race will be starting with a narrow pathway for the first 100 yards, until you cross the small bridge, from there it should be wide open.
