It is with mixed emotions that we announce the Raleigh 8000 will not be held this year.  We have taken great pride in hosting this event for last four years.  In that time we have hosted over 1,200 runners and raised over $12,000 for the benefit of Autism.  There are certainly larger races and ones that have raised more money but we are very proud of what we have accomplished.

None of this would have been possible without our loyal sponsors.  The Sawmill Taproom has been our presenting sponsor every year and Raleigh Running Outfitters has hosted us at their store and provided countless gift certificates as prizes.  In addition we have had the financial support of Premier Physical Therapy and PPD every year of our event.  We urge all of our past participants to continue to support these establishments.  These businesses took a chance on us when we were nothing but an idea for a new race.

If you have any comments or questions, please email us at TarRiverRunningCo@gmail.com.  If you are interested in helping to sponsor us in 2016 to bring the race back we would love to here from you.
