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 17th 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! 


For our virtual events, we are offering two options, RUN ANYWHERE with RaceJoy - 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.  Or you can run the events without RaceJoy.  The beauty is that you can support the Davidson Lands Conservancy in their efforts to protect, explore, and support natural environments while running anywhere you want. 

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.  


Follow this link to see why DLC's Run For Green should be your next Runcation The charming town of Davidson offers up a relaxing weekend coupled with reaching your running goals. There are wonderful local places to stay including the Davidson Village Inn and other bed and breakfasts. You can carb up for your run at one of the many amazing restaurants from Kindred to Carrburritos to dinner on the water at the  North Harbor Club, and many more.   After you finish your run, whether it is the 5K, 10K, or half marathon, you should bring your friends or family and take advantage of the wonderful shops and restaurants.  There are so many good places to see and restaurants to try that you’ll want to stay for the whole weekend!
