Run Darlington 2016
Over 65 years later, Darlington Raceway is still known as the track “Too Tough to Tame” with names like Baker, Flock, Thomas, Pearson, Yarborough, Petty, Earnhardt and Johnson becoming commonplace in victory lane.
Darlington Raceway’s historical significance, as the original paved superspeedway in NASCAR, is unparalleled.
The “Lady in Black” is for stock car racing what Lambeau Field is for football and Wrigley Field for baseball, the historical venue that shaped and molded their respective sports, which fans still revere to this day.
Its place in the history of the sport sets it apart from all other tracks. It brings its fans the great racing of today mixed with the nostalgia of the past.
Darlington Raceway continues to be an active community partner, hosting a variety of community events and participating in numerous local activities each year.
It’s a place of history where fans reminisce about the past, but create lasting memories of the present when NASCAR roars into Darlington Raceway each year.
They are known for offering something for everyone, and now runners can get a chance to finish on the Darlington Raceway at the Finish Line!
The Darlington Half Marathon, 5K and Fun Run will begin at The Darlington Raceway Saturday, April 30th at 7:00 a.m. The final mile is a lap around “the track too tough too tame” to cross the finish line! All half marathon finishers will receive a beautiful finishers’ medal that is representative of “the track too tough too tame”!
