Saturday, April 8 will be the Pacolet Area Conservancy’s (PAC’s) sixth annual 5K PACRun and the 12th annual PACWalk for Preservation held at the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) in Tryon.

Whether you run the all-natural 5K course that traverses varied terrain, entirely limited to trails and grass, or you walk the two-mile PACWalk course that will follow a nature trail through the woods, along Blockhouse Creek, and over a pond, offering sights and sounds of spring, or if you stroll the paved interpretive trail, or even if you choose to be a “Phantom Walker” and make a donation, you will be helping PAC conserve our precious natural heritage.

All participants will be eligible for door prizes donated by local businesses.
