Register for Florence Forth


Got a competitive streak? Florence Forth is the USATF NC 10K Championship Race with cash prizes for the top three men and women. And both the 10K and 5K are certified and chip-timed. Serious runners will enjoy the fast yet rolling courses.


Runners welcome! Whether running for the first time or achieving a personal best, enjoy the rolling 10K course or the beautiful 5K. With the Kids Cape Dash down Ninth Street, there really is a run for everyone.


Take it at your own pace! Enjoy a 5K walk through beautiful downtown Durham neighborhoods with your family, friends, church group or other local organization. Florence Forth is a welcoming event and everyone meets at the end for a community celebration.
