Our 9th annual Pine Cone Pacer was held Saturday, April 14, 2018. It was our best Pine Cone Pacer yet! With 132 runners out bright and early on a beautiful and warm Spring morning, we had a fun time celebrating exercise and spending time outdoors. It was a perfect day for a romp in the Duke Forest. Thank you to the Carolina Godiva Track Club for tallying all our runners’ times, and thank you to all our sponsors listed below. Monies raised through this event directly support otherwise unfunded projects to:
- expand our environmental education programs for the public,
- better maintain our network of foot trails, and
- improve management and protection of our significant natural areas
