The Cherokee Runners are presenting their 4th annual Moccasin Run on Sunday, Feb. 28.  Runners will be shuttled to Straight Fork Bridge in Big Cove, then follow Big Cove Road as it gently descends on to Acquoni Road and finish at the Yellowhill Community Building for after race snacks and awards.

A packet pick-up will be held on Saturday, Feb. 27 from 4-7pm at Paul’s Diner, 1111 Tsali Blvd in Cherokee, with a pasta dinner available for runners to purchase. Race registration will also be available at pick-up on Saturday and on Sunday morning from 5:30-6:30am at the Yellowhill Community building parking area. Shuttle will leave no later than 6:50am.

“Cherokee Runners began this race three years ago in an effort to revive the old Moccasin Run

and interest has grown steadily each year,” said Elnora Thompson, Cherokee Runners.  “We expect around 50 runners this year, and a portion of race registration will be donated to the Cherokee Cancer Support Group. We welcome all local runners to join us for this exciting race.  Hope to see you at the start line.”
