Short review

This historic event features three distances including the marathon, half marathon, and 5K plus a bonus challenge option. The half and full marathons use the gorgeous A & Y greenway in Greensboro, NC. This scenic, paved rail trail is a favorite to both race and train on. The 5K is takes place in Country Park, Greensboro's running Mecca.

Whether a veteran to distance running or a relative newbie, this event is a MUST DO for the course, the schwag, the glory, and the PARTY!

New in 2021, we are excited to announce the NEW Cannonball Double Barrel Challenge. The 5K portion of the races has moved to FRIDAY evening! This shift provides the unique opportunity to race in the evening AND opens up the challenge of participating in the 5K on Friday and either the half marathon or marathon on Saturday. Double Barrel Challenge participants receive their unique finishers medal and shirt for EACH event PLUS a third medal and ultimate in bragging rights!

The race has a NO WORRIES race registration guarantee so you can feel confident that you will NEVER lose the value of your race registration.
