Half-Moon Outfitters raised $1000 for Harbison State Forest in only its second trail race, The Make My Day 12K.

On February 20th, in Columbia, SC, 120 runners participated in the First Annual Make My Day 12K at Harbison State Forest. The race was a success as quoted by Harry Strick,
President of the Blue Cross Blue Shield running club, “Youse guys need to be seriously congratulated for putting on an exceptional first time trail race. It was really, really good.” Other racers were equally impressed, quoted Strick “The BlueCross people I talked to post-race were very happy. Tired, sore, muddy, but very happy.”

Wes Scott, only 19, of Spartanburg, SC was the overall winner at 49:36:00 and Meagan Weis, 32, of Columbia, SC was the women's winner in 57:38:00. Weis was also the overall women's winner in the Foothills Drifter 6K, a trail race held by Half-Moon Outfitters only three weeks before.

This is the second of two trail races put on by Half-Moon Outfitters for Spring 2010. The trail races have been exceptional and more are planned for the near future.

The race was outstanding and could only have been possible with the help from major sponsors Montrail, Mountain Hardwear, Camelbak, Yakima, Timex, Stivers Subaru, Piggly Wiggly, Gu, Sea to Summit, Reform Bode and Native Eyewear.
