Sat September 26 - Sun October 11 Davidson, NC 28036 US Directions

We are proud to announce that this is the 15th Annual Run For Green!  This is a big year for the Davidson Lands Conservancy because this is also our 20th Anniversary.  And, in case you didn't know,  this year is the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day!  While we feel it is not a good time to gather our runners in one location at one time this year due to COVID-19, we still want you to help us celebrate all of these milestones by running virtually!  


For our virtual events, we are offering two categories.  RUN ANYWHERE - This means you can run on your own anywhere to complete one of three distance choices.  You can run a 5k, a 10k, or a half marathon.  The second category is RUN OUR COURSE - This means you can download the app RaceJoy and it will guide you along our course.  You can run the 5k, 10k, or half marathon.  


All races include a t-shirt, medal, and finisher certificate.  


ONE MORE OPTION!  We would like to offer you the opportunity of the challenge.  This means you run 2 out of 3 events or you run all 3.  A special gift will be awarded to those who take on a challenge.  


After you finish your run, you will easily be able to upload your results through RaceJoy or you can still do it the old fashioned way and send them to if you don't want to use RaceJoy.
