Important Note From the Race Director

River Bound Race Supporters: 

Thank you so much to all the runners who registered early, volunteers who committed their time and sponsors who supported this year's race series. Unfortunately, due to a low number of participants, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the series. 

North Carolina Outward Bound School is in the process of considering fundraising efforts for the future and to determine the best way to raise funds for our School so that we can continue offering life-changing experiences to local students, educators and veterans. We appreciate everyone's generosity, and we hope that you will continue your support of North Carolina Outward Bound School in the future. 


With many thanks,

Josh Thomas, River Bound Race Director
