Description

Benefiting the 200 Club of Wake County

Fit & Able is proud to bring back the Cozy Toes race at its new home hosted by the NC State Highway Patrol as a part of their mission to improve the quality of life in our community.  Join us at Cosy Toes help support the 200 Club of Wake County and to learn more about the Department of Public Safety and how it serves you and your family. And while you are there, have a great race and enjoy the festivities!

Runners will have the opportunity to run on the NC Highway Patrol Driving Track.  There is NO SPEED LIMIT on the track so go as fast as you can! 

Please invite your friends and family to join you to support this incredible organization.

The 200 Club of Wake County is an organization of concerned citizens dedicated to providing immediate financial help for the spouse and children of police officers, sheriff deputies, firemen, EMS squad members and North Carolina State Highway Patrol serving in Wake County who lose their life in the line of duty

Cozy Toes is part of Fit & Able's Free-for-All Race Series.
