Something For Everyone!

Test your endurance during the Morganton Festival Weekend’s annual Sunrise Run on the Greenway, hosted by the Historic Morganton Festival, Inc. and presented by Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge! It takes place on the morning of Saturday, August 28, along a beautiful stretch of the Catawba River Greenway.
The morning will start with tunes from local DJ that will surely get your blood pumping bright and early. Along with the DJ, a host of sponsor tents will be on site at Catawba Meadows Park offering everything from healthy snacks to stretching exercises for before and/or after your run! So whether you are a runner or just the support group, there will be fun to be had by all!
The most popular and highly anticipated, Student Fitness Challenge, will see Elementary and Middle School students run for their school at 9:30am. This challenge is offered to Burke County Elementary and Middle Schools and is an opportunity to garner $200 for their physical education programs by having at least 10 participants complete the sunrise on mile fun run/walk; the school with the most finishers will receive an additional $500 for their program! Students must register through their PE Teachers; registration per student is $7.00 and includes a t-shirt!
Pre-registration and packet pickup will occur at the race site between 5:00pm and 7:00pm at Catawba Meadows on Friday, August 27th. Follow the signs!
Please note that participants in the Student Fitness Challenge MUST register with their PE Teachers by Friday, August 20th in order to be eligible for the race (and receive a t-shirt).
After the race, be sure to stop in Downtown Morganton and attend the Morganton Festival Weekend: Tradition Upheld, Safely Downscaled event on the Courthouse Square.
