Description

The twelfth annual Run for Green benefits the Davidson Lands Conservancy. It is a morning of races that support our efforts to protect natural areas, open spaces, and greenways/trails.  This year’s Run for Green will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2017 and will again feature a half-marathon, 10K, and 5K.

This year we welcome some of your favorites or soon to be favorites from the Carolina Renaissance Festival!  They will be out on the course to cheer you on as you run, they will be roaming the green post race, and a very special person will be on hand to announce your finish as you cross the line!  

Follow this link to see why DLC's Run For Green should be your next Runcation http://gardenandgun.com/article/small-town-escapes-davidson-nc. The town of Davidson offers up a relaxing weekend coupled with reaching your running goals . You can carb up for your run at one of the many amazing restaurants from Compania to Sabi Asian Bistro to dinner on the water at the  North Harbor Club, and many more.  Post run you can grab a beer at Flatiron Kitchen & Taphouse.  After you finish your run, whether it is the 5K, 10K or the 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 the whole weekend!
