Races Registration

*Online registration will be active on December 1st, 2020.

Online Registration

Online registration is the easiest, safest, and cheapest option for NCTRaces.  Registrations have increasing cost windows, so the earlier you register online, the better deal you will get.  Online registration before July 16th also guarantees you a t-shirt.  Registration after that is not guaranteed a t-shirt.

Our online registration is through UltraSignup.  Access our online registration through this link:

Race Day Registration

For 2021, there will only be race day registration if there is room left.  Social Media posts will be made as to our capacity and participant limit
