Run for Green – Ready, Set, Go! Last Minute Details.

Posted on 16. Sep, 2013 by in Events, Recent News, Run for Green 2013

Thank you for supporting the Davidson Lands Conservancy through ‘Run for Green.’  As we write this, we’re only 5 days away from what is looking like our biggest Run for Green ever!  We could not do it without you.

If you are preregistered for Run for Green, you’ll be receiving an e-mail with instructions on Thursday.  Here are some things to keep in mind:

Packet Pick Up

Packet pickup is Thursday from 4-8, and Friday from 10-8 at Omega Sports in the Northcross shopping center in Huntersville.  You can also pick up your packet on race day beginning at 5:30 a.m.  at the Village Green in Davidson (for those of you not familiar with Davidson, the Village Green is race headquarters and just yards from the start and finish line).

Omega Sports offers a 20% discount on any purchases made by Run for Green participants the day of packet pick up.  Please support Omega Sports, who has supported us for many years!

Race Day Registration

You can still register for Run for Green race day morning beginning at 5:30 a.m. at the Village Green.  BUT, based on current registration numbers we anticipate that the half-marathon will reach its cap before race day.  So, if you’re planning to run the half-marathon, sign up NOW!

1. Lake Norman Christian School

Want to Recycle Your Old Running Shoes?

Drop them in bins at the Omega Sports booth on the Green and send them on their way to another life.

Got (Chocolate) Milk? Beer?

After the race, chocolate milk will be available at the finish line and a free beer at Flatiron Kitchen and Taphouse by the starting area (Proof-of-age required for the beer.)

Hungry?

Breakfast burritos will be available for purchase at the Carrburritos booth on the Green. All Run for Green finishers will also get food at the finish line.

Say ‘Hello’ to Margaret!

90-year old Half-Marathoner Margaret Hagerty of Concord, NC, who has participated in all eight Run for Green events, will again compete in Davidson on Saturday, September 21. This year, she will attempt to set the North Carolina record in the half-marathon, having recently set the marks for 5k and 10k distances in her age-group. Margaret says she is also in the Guinness Records Book as the oldest person to compete in marathons on all seven continents.
Look for Margaret among the 900 expected runners and give her a special cheer.
