Allscripts Tobacco Road Marathon and VHB Half Marathon
Welcome to the 2023 Allscripts Tobacco Road Marathon and VHB Half Marathon to be held on Sunday, March 19, 2023, in Cary, North Carolina. The Full Marathon and the Half Marathon will be held on the same day starting at 7:00am and run mostly on the American Tobacco Trail.
A few notes: These are important! Please don't just skip by them.
Parking Passes for 2023 for new registrations are SOLD OUT (as of April 4, 2022).
T-shirts are not guaranteed for registrations after January 31, 2023, but request your size, and hopefullly you can pick one up immediately AFTER the race.
Deferrals are not permitted after January 31, 2023. No exceptions!
Transfers to another runner may be permitted after Janaury 31, 2023, but are not guaranteed.
Distance changes (Full to Half or Half to Full) are not permitted if the desired distance is sold out.
We typically offer discounts to various running groups. If you are part of a running group, talk to them to see if they have a discount.
We encourage athletes of all abilities to participate in our race. However, because of the limitations imposed by the course, particularly the five miles on the road, we have two special notes to ensure runner safety:
For 2023, we will have a strict course closure of 2:00pm so that runners are not on the roads without police coverage and coned lane closures.
Because of the unpaved surfaces, two-way traffic on the trail, and no usable shoulder on parts of the road sections, this course is not particularly good for athletes with disabilities due to safety reasons. If you are a disabled athlete, please contact email@example.com at least two months prior to the race date to discuss potential accommodations.
As a reminder, we have a NO REFUND policy, even if we cancel the race for any reason. This and other details are mentioned in the waiver that you agree to when you register. Read it!
When you register, we also request:
Please use a PERSONAL email, not a WORK email address. We have had many problems with people changing jobs between when they register and the race, and those runners then stop receiving important information.
Please try to avoid registering multiple runners using the SAME email address. It is possible to register multiple people under one email address, but it works out far better for communications for each runner to register with their own email address.
Please know that how you enter your name will be how it is shown in the results published after the race. (For instance, you may want to take time to capitalize the first letters.)
