Strava Challenge #10 – Raleigh Half Marathon Sampler

So you like Strava Challenges? We have another for you! If you haven’t already, join the Sir Walter Running Strava club! You can even go to SirWalterStrava.com and it will forward you to the right place. New here? Here’s a primer to Sir Walter Running Strava Challenges.

What is it? This is a celebration of the inaugural Raleigh Half Marathon, which will take place on Sunday, April 14, 2019. This challenge will take you through the first half mile of the course, as well as the hardest quarter mile of the course, aka “Sir Walter’s Revenge,”  that falls around mile 12.5 of the actual course. To see a map of the entire course, most of which is on the flat and fast Neuse River Greenway Trail, click here. You can learn more and register to race at RaleighHalfMarathon.com

Click the logo (or here) for more info!

Where do I park? At Buffaloe Road Athletic Park, located at5812 Buffaloe Rd, Raleigh, NC 27616. You can park right by the track.

Where do I start? On the main road, near the track. You’ll see a yellow ‘S’ on the street, right past the intersection after the track parking lot turn.

‘S’ marks the Start (and the Finish)

Where do I turn once I’ve started? The only major turn will be at the stop sign. During the race, you’d go right, and then left onto the Neuse River Greenway Trail. For this challenge, you’ll GO LEFT, towards the finish.

In the race, you’d turn right here, and then left onto the Neuse River Greenway Trail. In this Challenge, you’ll go left to simulate the finish

Where do I finish? Back where you started! Right before the crosswalk, you’ll want to use caution and turn left back onto the main road and finish at the ‘S.’

After the post, take a left back to the starting line. In the race, you would cross the street here and head towards the track.

When can I run? During park hours. In general parks are open from dawn to dusk everyday. Holiday hours can be found here. The challenge ends at dusk on December 31, 2018.

Where will I see the standings? Below (and here)! Also, if you haven’t already, visit the Sir Walter Running Strava Club page (make sure and join, so that your marks count).

What do I win? The fastest Men’s time and the Fastest Women’s time will net you a new Sir Walter Running T-Shirt. Also, the athlete (Male or Female) who completes the most loops in one run will get a T-Shirt as well!

Spring is coming. Pastels too.

Strava Challenge #9 – Champs-ElYates Mill

So you like Strava Challenges? We have another for you! If you haven’t already, join the Sir Walter Running Strava club! You can even go to SirWalterStrava.com and it will forward you to the right place.

The Tour de Walter, like the Tour de France, is now on its last leg, the Champs-Élysées of sorts. We hope you have enjoyed the 4 legs of the Series of Challenges, and will have more soon. We want to keep you posted on all things Sir Walter Running, so if you haven’t signed up for the Sir Walter Running email list, please do so here!

What is it? Historic Yates Mill County Park is the inspiration of the 2018 Sir Walter Miler logo. It’s also a fun place to run. With 3 trails that can be pieced together for a nice ~3 miler, we think you’re going to enjoy this last challenge! Make sure and take a photo by the mill when you’re done. And keep in mind, you may see some wildlife.

Where do I park? In the parking lot! Historic Yates Mill County Park is located at 4620 Lake Wheeler Rd, Raleigh, NC 27603. You’ll want to walk towards the left after you park.

Where do I start? Once you park, you’ll want to walk to the left, past the actual Yates Mill. You’ll walk down and up the rocks and over to a fence with a door. Start here.

Walk past this. Look familiar?

This is where you will start. Right in the “door frame.” You’ll also finish here.

Where do I turn once I’ve started? Go about a half mile straight along the side of the lake (aka the MillPond Trail) before taking a hard left towards the Creekside Trail. The Creekside Trail is a big lollipop. And when you come back around and over a bridge, you’ll take a hard right onto the High Ridge Trail (see below photos). The High Ridge Trail dead ends back at the lake, where you will bear right and head for the finish!

Once you run past this bridge, take a left towards the Creekside Trail

At the end of the bridge, go left here. You’ll see these signs. This is the Creekside Trail

At this fork, stay right. You will lollipop around to the same spot

At the end of the bridge, take a HARD RIGHT onto the High Ridge Trail. If you take the wrong right, you’ll be alongside the lake. Don’t do that!

At the end of the High Ridge Trail, take a right and head towards the finish.

Where do I finish? The same place you started! Between the “door frame.”

Start/Finish

When can I run? Historic Yates Mill County Park is open 7 days per week, 8 a.m. to sunset. No Midnight runs!

Where will I see the standings? Below! Also, if you haven’t already, visit the Sir Walter Running Strava Club page (make sure and join, so that your marks count).

What do I win? Again, we will have a random drawing for 2 Shirts of your choosing next Tuesday for ANYONE that completes this Challenge before Monday, July 30 at Midnight.

Tour de Walter? This is the 4th of a 4 segment Challenge called the Tour de Walter, in honor of the Tour de France. Everyone that competes all 4 segments will get a Tour de Walter tank top, and the Male and Female with the lowest overall times will get a pair of the Runologie x Sir Walter Miler goodr sunglasses that commemorate Sir Walter Miler 5! (now in stock at Runologie)!

We will post Final Overall Standings on August 1, 2018!

Check out the Summer of Miles podcast for the latest on the Tour de Walter!
