Come experience the Run For Green races! Our course is in the beautiful small town of Davidson, North Carolina. Be careful, though, it is so charming, you may just want to move! This year is our 19th Annual Running Event. We could not be more excited to bring you the quality race that you have come to expect. Our course winds it's way through lovely little neighborhoods with long stretches out in the woods on the greenway where you can take in the serenity of nature. Expect to encounter a hill or two, this is not what we would call a flat course. But, we will do our best to keep you motivated the whole way as you enjoy your run and the spirit of competition!
