HempfieldJoin Leland Lady Runners for our second annual Friendsgiving race. In this race you will have the opportunity to gather your FRIENDS, family and neighbors for a virtual festive race experience that also GIVES back to the community.

Using the RaceJoy app you will have the option of running a pre-designed route in the lovely Brunswick Forest community or running any route anywhere. Take advantage of the cooler temps and earn some extra calories for your Thanksgiving meal.

Leland Lady Runners is a local run group whose purpose is to connect ladies who live in the Leland area that love to run or want to start running. We offer FREE opportunities for ladies to connect in person or virtually. In November 2018 we hosted the Hurricane Florence 5K/1 mile to benefit the flood victims in Brunswick County. Then we decided to make this an annual event to benefit our local community.

Help us GIVE back with a double impact:

1) We will be collecting food items and donations for Mathew's Ministry, a non-profit organization that currently provides food for children at 12 schools in Brunswick County.

2) We will be giving money directly to each school or school program that creates a team. The larger the team, the more money raised for that school or school program. Be sure to create or join a school team to show your school spirit!!!
