For years, Unity Center of Peace has shared their parking lot with many runners, hikers and bikers who access the trails in the Carolina North Forest including the “Pumpkin Loop.” Run 4 Peace is designed to bring runners, neighbors, local families and Unity members together in a fun, healthy, active gathering to get better acquainted and to share in the beauty of the forest. Funds raised from this race will help support HomeStart, which provides 24-hour emergency and longer-term housing and services to homeless women and families in Orange County.
The event will include a timed 4K run and a 1-mile walk for families and kids. Prizes will be awarded for 1st place winners for men and women in each age category. Games and activities for children will take place throughout the morning. A food truck will be on hand providing delicious donuts, coffee, and tea.
