In July 2023 we will start the run at Fleet Feet Greensboro and end with a post race party at Fleet Feet High Point.
The relay course takes runners along the Greenway from Greensboro to High Point in a 16.1 mile route. This will be a relay in which 4 hand off locations will be set. Teams can be comprised of 4 members, 2 members or 1 brave participant! There will be a shuttle back for solo runners.
For your $30.00 donation (per person) you will a get a pair of pickle running shorts. All proceeds from this fun run will go to the Go Far-Fleet Feet Lace Up Program. Funds from this program are used to provide children at schools throughout Greensboro and High Point with new shoes in order to safely and comfortably participate in the Go Far 5K training program/race.

Why is it called The Pickle?
This is a destination run between the two stores. We threw around names and it was mentioned that the run was quite a "pickle", and the name stuck. The Fleet Feet Pickle was born.
How are we doing transportation?
You will be responsible for transporting your team members to and from each relay spot. We have mapped out the course to have safe locations for cars to pick up and drop off.

What about transportation for the brave soul that runs the entire length of the race?
Yes, there will be a shuttle driving people back to the High Point store.
What if we just have two people on our team?
Great! Teams can be comprised of 2,3 or 4 members, in addition to the solo runners. If you're part of a two person team, we would recommend having runner #1 go from the start to 9.75, and runner #2 runs from 9.75 to the finish.
