Everywhere you look there is another 5k popping up. This of course is not a bad thing. It means that more people are being active and more charities are raising funds and awareness. The challenge is that with so many 5ks the race scene has become a bit diluted and the number of participants in each race is getting smaller and smaller.
Enter the Down East Race Series. A group of eight races (and growing) in eastern North Carolina are joining forces to create a new 5k series. We are each promoting each other's race, scoring performances at each 5k, and putting up real CASH. The cash will be used for three ways:
1) Pay for our website and social media promotions
2) Create a year end prize pool for the top point earners
3) Purchase awards for series participants
The Down East Race 5k Series does NOT profit from any runners or from any race in the series.
