Walk, Run or Skip to Northgate Mall Saturday, April 6

Durhamites know that no matter what walk of life we come from, we're all part of the great human race.

This is why Northgate Mall is pleased to announce its second year as sponsor and host of the Volunteer Center of Durham's Great Human Race, Saturday, April 6 at 8:30am, a unique 5K run and community walk that supports over 100 nonprofits, schools and faith-based groups. Now in its eighteenth year, the event has raised over $2 million for area groups since its inception in 1996.

Northgate will welcome over 1,000 runners and 2,000 walkers on Saturday, April 6. The event will include plentiful free parking, food and entertainment and runner awards at the conclusion of the event. The 5K course will wind through the historic Watts Hospital-Hillandale neighborhood adjacent to Northgate Mall.

Runners can pick up a pre-registration packet Friday, April 5 from 11am-2pm and again from 4:30 pm-7 pm near Northgate’s Hibbett Sports. The day-of race runner registration begins at 7:00 am. The run begins at 8:30 am. For more information visit The Volunteer Center online.
