The race will be located at Northgate Mall, in Durham. Event festivities include a Nonprofit Marketplace where organizations (like AnimalKind!) can display their products and services, exciting local entertainment and refreshments. The 5K course will wind through the historic Watts Hospital-Hillandale neighborhood.
