Pax of F3 Columbia, Lake Murray and Lexington time to break out your trail shoes and brush up on your compass reading (never know when you may get lost out there) it’s time to sign up for the Make My Day 5k or 12k at Harbison State Forest. This race was well attended last year by the pax of then F3 Columbia with several doubledowns after #Strut including some running from bootcamp to the race and it would be great to get an even bigger F3 presence now that we have expanded into Lake Murray and Lexington.
Why run this race? Well you can run because you are training for the P200, or you want to support the State Forest, or you just want something different than the same old loop on pavement but I would also suggest everyone should participate simply for the Swag that comes in the race packet. Every participant this year gets a North Face race shirt and a pair of Smartwool socks, what other reason do you need. Last year they also had multiple door prizes and giveaways and Salomon vendors there to let you try out their shoes.
+From the race event page:
The 6th Annual Make My Day trail race will take place on February 14th, 2015 in Columbia, SC at Harbison State Forest.
This trail race encompasses three of the major trails in the forest (Firebreak, Stewardship, Midlands Mountain), giving each runner the chance to really experience the beauty of a local trail running venue.
Harbison State Forest consists of over 2,000 acres of forestland only nine miles from downtown Columbia. It is one of the largest public greenspaces inside the city limits of a metropolitan area in the eastern US. Runners of all skill are invited to attend – from advanced to novice – this race has something for everyone!. So lace up those running shoes, grab some friends and come dominate some trails! Run local, support local!
All proceeds from the Make My Day will go to Friends of Harbison State Forest!
Currently $4,000 has been donated to the Sustainable Trails Fund to help continue the efforts of this group.
And a huge THANK YOU to our sponsors – THE NORTH FACE, Salomon, and Smartwool.
