TENTATIVE RACE PLANS 2021

While it's too soon to say for sure, we are hopeful that we can resume live racing for the 2021 Cook Medical Beat the Heat 5K races.  When registration opens on April 1, we plan to offer both live racing and a virtual option.  We'll know more as time progresses and we'll update our plans as they develop.  We hope you will mark July 17, 2021 on your calendars and plan to join --either in person or virtually for this great event.  Run it for our charity partners.  Run it for community health.  Run it to cross your own finish line!

Beat the Heat has been one of the most popular races in North Carolina for more than 30 years!. It has been selected multiple times by Endurance Magazine as the best 5K in Triad NC and was featured in Running Journal magazine as the #1 “Under the Radar” race in the South. Beat the Heat is a charity event with proceeds going to local non-profits that support health and fitness in the community.

HEATHY FUN FOR EVERYONE!
