Fourth Annual Cary Academy 5k

“Take a couple hundred people carefully getting things ready behind-the-scenes, then you bring in another few hundred CA folks of various types, ages, and speeds, and finally you ring a bell, setting them off to run, walk, skip, hop, and/or jump in some combination hither and yon over a scenic course winding its way around and through the CA campus.”
– David Snively, MS History Teacher

“The press of my foot to the earth springs a hundred affections.” -Walt Whitman

“Running is my passion. The challenge, the effort, and the unalloyed joy. What a delight to run with students, parents, and colleagues. The Charger Derby 5K is a well-organized, positive, exciting event. I hope to see repeat runners and some new competition out there this May! Charger Strong!”
– Sara Mizelle, MS French Teacher

“Quite possibly the greatest 5K on the planet”
– Race Directors Mike Bate & Dave Hughes
