The Johnson Lexus 5k, 10k, Half Marathon will be held on September 21(st), 2013. The Midtown Race Series produces premier running events in Midtown Raleigh, NC.
In recognition of their commitment to the Midtown Race Series, Johnson Lexus has been awarded the event naming rights for the September 21(st), 2013 event. The race will also be presented by Massage Envy.
As the official automotive sponsor for the Midtown Race Series 2013 races, Johnson Lexus has provided the chance for participants to win a new Lexus IS C worth up to $45,000.
