DAVIDSON – The Second leg of the 2013 Summit Twilight Racing Series gets underway at 7 p.m. June 8 with the Summit Solstice 4-Mile Obstacle Challenge.
The race benefits Nothing But Nets, a campaign from the United Nations Foundation that aims to stop the spread of malaria in Africa.
Summit and Nothing But Nets are teaming with several local partners, including Ben & Jerry's, Training Ground at Davidson, CrossFit Davidson and Pro Skills Basketball, to operate different "challenges" along the course.
Triple C Brewing will be back for the post-race party, as will the Papi Queso food truck. David Childers + The Overmountain Men will provide entertainment for the crowd.
All week long, Summit is raising awareness by hanging mosquito nets around the shop.
For $10 you can send a life-saving mosquito net to those in need.
Davidson College’s own Stephen Curry has teamed up with Summit and Nothing But Nets for an in-store fundraising raffle to win a personalized jersey.
Raffle tickets cost $5 for one or $10 for three.
Curry has donated two more jerseys to raffle off over the weekend.
The 2013 Summit Twilight Racing Series got underway in March with the Leprechaun Loop 8K. The event had over 700 entrants and helped Summit Coffee raise over $2,000 for Levine’s Children Hospital in Charlotte.
Registration and packet pick up for the event begins at 5:30 p.m. June 8.
Registration after May 1 costs $30.
