Patrick’s Strawberry Sprint

Lumberton , NC

A Surprisingly Short and Sweet Strawberry Sprint around the Famous Jack Pait Strawberry Field

Are you fast? Are you slow? (who cares?!) Have you ever had a race with a strawberry stop along the route?

We are pleased, proud, tickled, and excited to hold the fourth annual Patrick's Strawberry Sprint. All proceeds to support the Patrick Pait Memorial Scholarship.

This is a race EVERYONE can complete! It's the peoples race. This, like our parade is going to be short and sweet. We will run a 0.5K race around our strawberry field. That's right, it's a half a kilometer race. To save you from doing the math that around 1500 feet - 5 football fields - 1.3 laps around a track - You probably walk further on a shopping trip to Wal-Mart!

Join us for the shortest race you've ever run! So short we won't even have a water stop along the route, but we will have a strawberry stop, where we pass out delicious farm fresh berries as you trot around the field.

Registration cost is just $20 dollars for the sprint and includes the official race shirt (watch our Facebook page to see the big reveal!) a free u-pick quart of berries when you finish, Awseome Quart Cup Medal, and the chance to win some awesome awards!

We will have awards for: First place, Middle Place, Oldest, Youngest, Sweetest Moves (style points), and Best Outfit/Costume

We are thrilled to offer you two race options this year, plus a super special event!

In addition to the Strawberry Sprint we will offer a new race called the Strawberry Challenge!!

The BIG BERRY Challenge!!!!
This race is four times as long and has a special stop.  The Strawberry Challenge will take four laps around the field, and have a stop after each lap where participants will have to eat a whole cup of delicious Jack Pait Strawberries before completing the next lap.

Registration for the Challenge will cost $25.00 and participants in this race will recieve a free quart of berries, Sprint T-Shirt, plus a Commemorative Pint Glass and the knowlege that you competed in the second running of the Strawberry Challenge.

So Come One, Come All!  The challenges have been set. Come Sprint, Saunter, Stroll, Sashay, Step, Stride, Schllep, Scuff, Shimmy, Shuffle, Stamp, Stomp, Strut, Swagger, or Strike Out with us on April 22nd!!
