25 Runs/Walks to Tackle This Spring

March 2, 2018

The greater Fayetteville area has rightfully earned the reputation of being a runner's destination. As it's home to thousands of military members, veterans and retirees from Fort Bragg, our locals naturally take fitness to a whole new level. Spring marks the season when you'll find a different run/walk every single weekend in the communities of Cumberland County. Visitors come from all over to tackle some of our bigger races, like the All American Marathon and Reebok Spartan Race, while others just take advantage of our many fun runs and walks for causes. If you're looking for ways to get active this spring, look no further than these 25 upcoming events, and start planning your trip now. On your marks, get set, go!
