What is it? Kicking off the 2019 Tour de Walter is the Lassiter Falls Ghost 5k, a rolling loop that starts and finishes at the back of Lassiter Falls Circle (by the waterfall), and climbs up the Lassiter Mill hill, before meandering back through the neighborhoods. The route is an perfect example of what to expect over the next 4 weeks.
Why is it called the Lassiter Falls Ghost 5k? Hmm…
Where do I park? Lassiter Mill Park is located at 3362 Lassiter Falls Cir, Raleigh, NC 27609. There should be plenty of parking. It is at the bottom of Lassiter Mill Road.
Where do I start? You will start at the back of the parking lot, at the beginning of the greenway. This is the same place you will finish. There are 2 poles with no signs on them. This is your starting line.
Where do I turn once I’ve started? There are a few more turns on this one than usual, so if you need to, print out this first image, or save it to your phone.
Here are the step by step instructions
Where do I finish? Back where you started!
What do I do after I finish? Check out the waterfall!
When can I run? Anytime between now and midnight on Sunday, July 7th.
Where will I see the standings? Below, and here (Make sure you filter accordingly). 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 Male and Female time for Week 1 will recieve a 2019 Sir Walter Miler T-Shirt! Everyone that completes all 4 Challenges will recieve a Tour de Walter koozie. Check out the Tour de Walter page for Standings and more information.
