Leg 2 is reminiscent of the second half of the 2019 Raleigh Half Marathon course, as you’ll start just before WRAL Soccer Park and will finish right after the Buffaloe Road Canoe Launch, before the Buffaloe Road Athletic Park connector.
Where do I start?
You will start about 1/4 mile before getting to WRAL Soccer Park.
Where do I finish?
Right after the Buffaloe Road Canoe Launch, before the Buffaloe Road Athletic Park connector.
Where do I park?
For the start, you’ll want to park in the back of the WRAL Soccer Park (near Field 12) where the entrance to the Neuse River Greenway is. The address there is 7700 Perry Creek Rd, Raleigh, NC 27616. Note: You’ll want to walk about 1/4 mile back towards the dam to the Leg 2 start.
For the finish, the Buffaloe Road Canoe Launch, located at 4901 Elizabeth Dr, Raleigh, NC 27604 is a great entry point, as the start is about 1/4 past that towards the Buffaloe Road Athletic Park connector.
Anything interesting about Leg 2?
This is another fairly straight leg. You’ll go over the rolling boardwalk and will run along the river until you close in on Buffaloe Road Athletic Park.
