Description

The thirteenth 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 29, 2018 and will again feature a half-marathon, 10K, and 5K.  We are thrilled to announce that once again our presenting sponsor is MSC Industrial Supply.  Please be sure to check out their link below.

NOTE:  All half marathoners will receive a finisher medal. 

After you finish your run, please enjoy refreshments on the Village Green including BEER while you listen to the fantastic music from The Southern Style Band.  And don't forget to check out the sponsors' tents;  without them, this race would not be possible!
