Like most races last year, the 26th Annual Run for Life was a virtual event with 135 registrants.
In 2019 over 240 runners and walkers registered for this event which is held at the WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary. Rodger Shull took top honors in 17:05. Jenny DiPaolo won the women’s competition in 20:12. Ryan Kaat holds the course record for this event running 16:19 in 2011. Michelle Langan set the women’s standard of 17:39 in 2014.
Once again the event this year will be a virtual event.
