The second of four races in the 2014 Summit Twilight Racing Series, the Summit Solstice on June 21 is an exciting 5.3-mile trail race on the campus of Davidson College. The race starts in downtown Davidson and winds its way on paved roads before hitting the trails for 3 miles and finishing at Summit Coffee!
The event benefits Nothing But Nets, part of the U.N. Foundation, a global grassroots campaign to raise awareness and funding to fight malaria, a leading cause of death among children in Africa. Nothing But Nets works with UN partners like UNICEF, the UN Refugee Agency, and the World Health Organization to purchase nets, transport them to Africa, and distribute them to families.
The race starts near Summit Coffee in Davidson, North Carolina. Take I-77 to exit 30, head East on Griffith Street, then turn right on Main Street. Registration will be at Summit Coffee.
New course for 2014! A unique, challenging 5.3-mile trail course on wide gravel trails, with a mile of paved roads at the start and finish.
All runners get free entry to Summit’s fantastic post-race party, with live music, food, beer, and awards.
