Fit & Able is proud to bring back the Summer's Done 13.1 at Bond Park! If you're looking for a low-key race to keep you active over the summer, give you a goal to train for, and get you ready for the fall race season this is the race for you!


Every runner chases the dream of running a marathon. The marathon presents a challenge that requires hard work, determination, and focus; and when achieved, it provides great satisfaction and joy. 


BUT have you ever wanted to run a marathon without having to actually run a marathon? With the Half & Half Summer Series you can do just that when you sign up for both 13.1 races at the Sizzling Soles Half-marathon and Summers Done 13.1. Complete both races and we will combine your finish times to give you a 26.2 finish time with a extra set of awards! 


PLUS you can save 10% on each race when you sign up for both together using the Marathon Bundle! * You can find the bundle under the main event cards above (click View All Events)


* FOR YOUR SAFETY: Please review this information on HYDRATION and HEAT DISORDERS and ensure you have adequately trained for your chosen race distance under these specific climate conditions. This is a summer event in North Carolina. You can find historical climate data for race day in Cary, NC here:
