Race for Steak


 

The Race for Steak

 

The Angus Barn in Raleigh, NC

October 14, 2018

Accompanying our annual Walk for Hope, the Race for Steak is a USA Track & Field Certified run held in Raleigh, North Carolina, with timed 5K and 10K routes. 100% of the money raised by participants directly funds local mental health research at the UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Psychiatry. And, as critically, it helps call attention to the stigma and significance of these often invisible illnesses, which affect as many as 1 in 5 American adults.

Route Details

The Race for Steak features two different routes:

  • 10K (6.2 miles) begins at the Angus Barn on Hwy 70, loops through the Umstead State Park, and returns to the Angus Barn.
  • 5K (3.1 miles) begins at the Angus Barn on Hwy 70, turns around just before the Umstead Visitor Center, and returns to the Angus Barn.

View the map of both routes.
