    2023 Marks the 20th running of The Cannonball.

    This historic event is the LARGEST celebration of running in our region.

    Race distances include Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K (NEW in 2023), 5K, Kids Dash AND a bonus challenge option. The backdrop for the races are the gorgeous A & Y greenway in Greensboro, NC and Country Park. The start/finish for all events take place in Country Park, Greensboro's running Mecca.

    Whether a veteran to distance running or a relative newbie, this event is a MUST DO for the course, the schwag, the glory, and the PARTY!

    What is that challenge? The Double Barrel Challenge!
    The Friday night 5K allows the unique opportunity to race in the evening AND opens up the challenge of participating in either the 10K, half marathon or marathon on Saturday. Double Barrel Challenge participants receive two shirts and two custom finisher medals (one for each event), PLUS bonus bling for completing the Double Barrel Challenge. Not to mention extra beer and bragging rights!!!

    All race participants will receive a custom finishers medal (Kids dash will not receive a medal or shirt, but their own "goodies'), t-shirt, food, beer (21 and up), FREE professional race photos and a celebration! Everyone, friends and family can enjoy the post race celebration with live music, awards ceremony and activities.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.
