Ford's Colony 10k/5k

Congratulations Runners! The inaugural Ford's Colony 5k and 10k is now in the books. We want to thank you all for participating in the event. The race results are now available online. Click the Results link to the left to see the winners.

We sold out in our first year, but determined that we can handle more runners for 2009. So we will increase capacity, but not by much. Running on the paths is easily one of the prettiest 5ks and 10ks you will experience in North Carolina. Over crowding the course with extra runners will take away from your enjoyment. So be on the look out for registration. You will not want to miss out!

Your first thought might be why run a race at a golf course? If you ask this question, you have not visited Ford's Colony, Rocky Mount! Ford's Colony is less than two years old, but has already drawn a reputation as a premier golf course in the southeast. The David Johnson designed course opened in September of 2007 and is sure to become a masterpiece.

Utilizing a classic front-nine out and back-nine return routing, the course takes full advantage of the gently rolling terrain and allows for a six uninterrupted miles of wide and smooth paved paths. Runners and walkers will pass over multiple brick bridges, through several wooded paths, and take in multiple views of the 80 acre Belmont Lake along the route.

New this year is a 1.5 mile Fun Run. So bring out the entire family! We have also added $100 bonuses for the first runners to reach time premiums (see additional prizes below). Races sold out in 2008. Don't delay getting registered. To learn more, visit the official rate site at
