The Great Human Race

March 24, 2013 - Durham, NC

Sorry, but the online registration is no longer available for this event.

The Volunteer Center of Durham's 17th Annual GREAT HUMAN RACE is a 5k run and community walk that supports area nonprofits. This unique fundraising event supports 100+ nonprofits, schools and faith-based groups and has raised over $1.6 million since it's inception in 1996. There are plenty of ways to get involved...run, walk, volunteer, donate or raise money for your favorite nonprofit.

The Great Human Race is excited to announce a new event venue and course. Northgate Mall, in Durham, NC, is our new host. We will still be offering our Nonprofit Marketplace and kids inflatable playground area as well as entertainment and refreshments. Parking is plentiful and Northgate Mall is easily accessible from all directions.

The new 5k course will wind through the Historic Watts Hospital-Hillandale neighborhood. This gently rolling course will take runners and walkers down the six-block length of Club Boulevard which is a grand urban gesture, one of the loveliest streets in Durham. The ancient willow oaks between the sidewalks and curbs on both sides of Club Boulevard soar one hundred feet in the air to create a leafy bower. Many of the houses have been rehabilitated in the past two decades. This is truly one of Durham's most active and lovely neighborhoods.

Please visit our website for a complete listing of participating agencies and for more information about how to donate.
