NCRC's Spring Forth was initiated in 2021 as a replacement event for the COVID-19-canceled Run for the Roses 5K. Run for the Roses returned in 2022, and Spring Forth enters its fourth year with plans for a bigger, better event this time. What is NCRC's Spring Forth? Basically, it's a weeklong scavenger hunt photo challenge. If you meet the easy challenge, you win a $10 Capstone Events race credit (eligible races include City of Oaks, Bull City Race Fest, the Hamptons Marathon in New York, and the Greenbrier Half Marathon in West Virginia) and a chance to win another prize in a drawing). You are welcome to participate as a couple or a team if you would prefer that option (We just need contact information of a team leader, and only that person can post photos). It's a family-friendly event!

We (the North Carolina Roadrunners Club) are a nonprofit group, and our races and community service events raise money for other nonprofit groups. The beneficiaries again for this year's NCRC's Spring Forth will be Girls on the Run of the Triangle and the City of Oaks Foundation. For this event, 100% of the registration fees will be split between the two charities. Participants can also make additional donations to one or both organizations. Over three years, this event has raised a donation total of almost $3,000. 

How does NCRC's Spring Forth work? Full details can be found on our How It Works page. Essentially, it's a simple challenge. We give you a list of 10 categories for snapshot photos (click on Photo Galleries above to see the categories), which are easiest to find while visiting a park or parks. Photos must be taken outdoors and not at your residence. One category will be mandatory, but you can choose six of the other nine categories. For the week beginning April 13 (April 13-20), you'll have eight days to post photos. The categories are broad, so you can be creative! We have one new category this year. Photos will be posted in the galleries on this website. You're also welcome to post your photos on Instagram. You need to post photos in only seven categories to receive the race credit and be eligible for our gift prize drawing. 

Anyone can view the photos, but you have to register in order to post them. All of this year's prize donors will be listed on our Donors page. 

What's new this year? We're trying new promotion strategies to increase participation. The more participation we have, the better for our event and our beneficiary organizations.

We look forward to seeing everyone's photos! Previous years' photos are available on this website's Past Photos tab.
