Tobacco Road Full & Half Marathon Fast Facts
The V Foundation is thrilled to be partnering with the Tobacco Road Marathon & Half Marathon, which will be run on March 17, 2019, in Cary, North Carolina. Like the V Foundation, Tobacco Road is a locally based organization that calls Cary home. Run almost entirely on the American Tobacco Trail, Tobacco Road is a fantastic race for both runners looking for a first-time full or half marathon and for those seeking to run a personal best or even qualify for the Boston Marathon. The organizers behind Tobacco Road are all experienced runners who dedicate themselves to putting on an event that is finely tuned to meet the participants’ needs. From extra ice and water on unseasonably warm race days to their famous “PR bell” that athletes ring after crossing the finish line with a new personal record for the distance, Tobacco Road is a hometown gem with big city polish.
Team V has secured a limited number of entries for the Tobacco Road Full and Half-Marathon races. These entries will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Cancer has touched Randy’s life in far too many ways. It took the lives of his mother, mother-in-law and father-in law. If that wasn't enough, his best friend and neighbor of over 25 years, Scott Cooper, was also diagnosed with head and neck cancer.
Jamie Lassner was initially motivated to join Team V out of a desire to run his hometown marathon. A lifelong New Yorker and 9/11 First Responder, he chose to run for Team V in hopes of helping to find cancer cures for those who spent time at Ground Zero, as well as in memory of first responders, friends and loved ones who have passed away too soon in life because of cancer.
