Next Local Race - The PACRun!

It's time to get ready for the 2nd Annual PACRun 5K Trail Run on May 5th, 2012.  This race is held on the beautiful trails surrounding Tryon Estates. It is a TRAIL race so there are no smooth paths here, but it is not terribly technical so it is a great trail run for someone new to trail running or someone (like me) who is lacking coordination. 

The PACRun, along with the PACWalk held the same day, benefits the Pacolet Area Conservancy which strives to protect mountains, forests, farms, waterways and greenspaces.

 Race Director Caroline Eller is an active member of the Tryon Running Club and does a great job coordinating everything on race day. Last year the race was fun and well organized with plenty of volunteers to keep things running smoothly. After the race there is an awards ceremony and FREE LUNCH!

You can register for this run online at Strictly Running or on race day before the race.
