MILES OF HOPE 2020/2021



We plan to host this event again in the future once it is safe and feasible to do so. We look forward to seeing you there!

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!

General Information 

Join us for our second annual event in historic downtown Pittsboro. Thanks to many of you, last year’s inaugural event, Take CF Away Cycle & 5K, was a huge success.  This year we have rebranded the event to Miles of Hope and we are excited to announce the formation of Take It Away 501(c)(3), a local non-profit that will host this event and conduct other fundraising activities throughout the year.  


All net proceeds from Miles of Hope and Take it Away will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, an organization that is working tirelessly to fund life-saving research that will improve the lives of those affected by CF and hopefully one day discover a cure.


Miles of Hope is an event for the entire community. Whether you are a biker, runner/walker, or just enjoy music, family friendly actives, and eating pancakes, and cheering on race participants, Miles of Hope has something for you!


Race participants can choose from a 5K Run/Walk, or 22-mile, 44-mile, or 62-mile bike ride.  The 5K course is a loop traveling through the mostly shared streets of historic Pittsboro. The bike routes head south of Pittsboro, through the picturesque country side of southern Chatham Country, before returning to Pittsboro. All events are electronically timed with awards.  The 5K is apart of the Dick’s Sporting Good’s Piedmont Race Series.


T-shirts are guaranteed to all that register by April 13th, but we will do our best to have shirts for everyone.

Runners and bikers can register in person and/or pick up race packets on Friday April 24th from 12:30pm to 7:00pm at Deep River Mercantile, 115 Hillsboro St, Pittsboro, NC 27312

If you have any questions about the event, please contact


Pricing for the 5K and bike race an be found on the registration website.
