HALF-MOON OUTFITTERS TRAIL RACE SERIES RAISES $4000 THROUGH THEIR SPRING TRAIL RACE SERIES BENEFITING; HARBISON STATE FOREST, LAKE CONESTEE NATURE PARK AND THE STATE BOTANICAL GARDENS OF GEORGIA.
CHARLESTON, SC (April 17, 2013) – On February 9th in Greenville, SC, Half-Moon Outfitters hosted the 4th Annual Foothills Drifter 6k Trail Race. Over 300 runners participated in this fourth annual event held at Lake Conestee Nature Park. Racers enjoyed the cool, clear weather. The race finish was at the newly completed pavilion at the southern hub of the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Half-Moon raised $2,000 for Lake Conestee Nature Park.
On February 16th, Half-Moon Outfitters hosted the 4th Annual Make My Day 12K at Harbison State Forest. The race hosted over 165 runners who braved the frigid winter weather. The race raised $1000 for Harbison State Forest, which is one of the largest green spaces located inside the city limits of a metropolitan area in the eastern United States.
“The course was beautiful, muddy, disgusting and gross – just what we love and want” said Dean Schuster following the Make My Day 12. “Because no one promised you sunshine, puppy dogs and lollipops!”
The 3rd Annual Cherokee Rose 5k was held on April 13th at the State Botanical Gardens of Georgia. It is the only race held in the Gardens and hosted over 105 runners. The Garden remains free and open to the public and one of their fundamental missions is to provide knowledge and experience.
