Plenty of parking will be available to runners at Johnson Volvo Cars Durham: 966 Southpoint Autopark Blvd, Durham, NC 27713

Participants will need to access the start/finish venue from NC-751 on race morning and not from Highgate Drive to avoid road closures.

Runners can take I-40 to Exit 274 and then turn directly onto Southpoint Autopark Blvd from NC-751 to reach the start area.


Given the amount of parking within close proximity of the start/finish line, we will not be offering gear check.

There will be port-o-johns available near the start/finish area race on race day, as well as at each hydration station.



Hydration station locations for each distance are listed below:

  • Hydration Station #1: Mile 1.5 (All Distances), 10k Mile 4.5, Half Marathon Mile 11
  • Hydration Station #2: Half Marathon Mile 4, Mile 9
  • Hydration Station #3: Half Marathon Mile 6, Mile 7

Each hydration station will have water and a sports drink. There will be a port-o-john at each hydration station.


After the race, celebrate your accomplishment with pizza, a special holiday treat, and a refreshing beverage from Michelob Ultra!

All half marathon participants will be rewarded with a 2022 Finisher Medal. Participants that opted to have their bib mailed before race day will be able to pick up their participant shirt at the Customer Service Tent after they cross the finish line.


Results will be posted online at Race131.com/results when they become available. We will NOT have a results tent following the race.
