2024 American Tobacco Trail 10-Miler

October 26 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Welcome to the 2024 American Tobacco Trail 10-Miler Sat, Oct 26, 8:00am-5pm. Held in the early fall, the race is a perfect distance for those tapering for a fall marathon, preparing for the Tobacco Road Marathon, or trying out a new race distance. It has been designated the RRCA North Carolina State Championship 10 Mile Event each year from 2008 to 2016, the RRCA Southern Region 10-Mile Championship in 2017 and 2022, and the state championship again in 2018, 2019, and 2021. Do not miss this rare opportunity to race on one of the finest, most beautiful courses in the Triangle!

The American Tobacco Trail 10 Miler was created in 2007 to raise awareness of and support for the growing trail system throughout the Triangle and to try to have a minimal impact on the environment.
In 2018, the race introduced a 4-mile event that is more accessible to runners in the area who prefer shorter distances.  The 4-mile race begins ten minutes after the second wave of the 10-miler starts and proceeds along the same course, turning around at the 2-mile mark just south of Wimberly Drive.

Separate 10-miler starting times for women and men are used to manage the size of the clusters of runners on the trail. The women start at 8:50am, while the men’s race kicks off at 8:58am. The 4-mile race will begin at 9:10am The 8-minute stagger between the women’s and men’s starts is part of a “chase” competition, where the women get a head start, the men follow, and the first overall finisher gets a cash prize.

Both the start and the finish lines are on the trail at the White Oak Church Road trailhead parking lot. The race starts at the 16.75-mile marker just off the White Oak Church Road trailhead, proceeds south five miles, turns around at the 21.75-mile marker, and returns north to finish at the same point as the starting line.  Aid stations with water, Gatorade Endurance Formula (the official endurance sports drink of the ATT-10), and porta-johns will be at the crossing of Wimberly Road and Olive Chapel Road.
