Virtual Sunrise Run 5K & 10K

September 12th - October 12th

Due to restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Historic Morganton Festival is on hold until September 10 and 11, 2021. However, we are excited to announce that the annual Sunrise Run on the Greenway is still on! The 2020 Sunrise Run on the Greenway is going VIRTUAL from September 12th to October 12th! Registration is now open for you to run your own race. You can register for a 5K or 10K anytime between now and October 12th. The virtual race will open on Saturday, September 12 (the original race date) and will end at 11:59pm on Monday, October 12. Run the 5K or 10K at any point during the month and then submit your times in your Run Sign Up profile. Run anywhere in town, state, or country! The original race routes will be included online for those interested in running the usual route.

Local businesses need our support now more than ever. In an effort to keep business local, each participant will receive a swag bag including t-shirt, finishers medal, and other surprises (to be announced later) from local Morganton businesses. When signing up please indicate if you'd like to pick up your swag bag in person OR if you would like it mailed to you (an additional mailing fee will be added). Swag bag pick ups and mailings will be available beginning October 12th.
