Carry Your Cross 5k – April 19, 2014 – Pole Creek Baptist Church – Candler, NC

Carry Your Cross 5k

This is literal, runners. If you do this race you’re going to carry some lumber for the last 1,000 feet.


Now in its fourth year, the family friendly Carry Your Cross 5K is quickly becoming the race to run on Easter Weekend. The 1K is available for older kids and Fun Run should satisfy children under age 6. Child care is provided during the 5K so the whole family can participate.

The road race starts and finishes at Pole Creek Baptist Church in Candler, NC.

You actually carry a 4ft length of 2×4 lumber across your back for the final 2/10 of a mile uphill! Be careful when passing other runners while carrying your cross. When the race is over, do not drop your cross in the finish line area and please be cautious of the volunteers collecting chips. When the final participant finished we will collect all crosses at the stage area.



Race starts at 9:00 AM. Online registration is available at Race IT. Timing will be done by Lee Timing. For more information, visit the race website.
