PLAYLIST: While this is a no "ear buds" event, we will be cranking tunes at the staging area. You can check out the Playlist here.


On my farm was a group of several hundred trees. They were tall and straight. I called them my temple. [Horace Williams]

The TrailHeads are pleased to announce the Tenth Annual Philosopher's Way 7K and 10 Mile Trail Runs, scheduled for Saturday, May 6th, 2017. Both courses gently roll along single-track trails in the Carolina North Forest. We've added a section of new single-track to the 15K course to bring the distance to 10 miles, in alignment with our Little River Trail Runs.

The event will promote awareness of the Forest, UNC's active management program and will provide the participants and community a chance to learn and connect with the natural environment. Proceeds are donated to Carolina North Forest for trail planning and maintenance.

The 10 mile race will start at 8:00 a.m. and the 7K will start at 8:20 a.m. with door prizes and awards to follow.
