The NC Rainbow Run is an untimed 5K trail race taking place on Saturday, March 5th at Old River Farms in Burgaw, North Carolina. The run is organized by two high school students; Josefina Gordon and Irene Cho. All registration proceeds will benefit the Open House Youth Shelter of Coastal Horizons which is a center for homeless youths, including LGBT+ teens in, Wilmington, NC. The difference between our race and others is that ours is not about speed--it's about raising funds! Awards will be given for individuals and teams raising the most for the organizations that help LGBT+ youth.
The race will be held at Old River Farms at 8711 Old River Rd. Burgaw, NC 28425. Old River Farms is family owned and run and in addition to hosting school field trips and community activities they also have a wonderful garden center with fresh herbs, vegetables, and flowers. They also have a variety of animals you can look at or pet such as goats, cows, sheep, and a horse. The course for the fun run will take participants through the farm's beautiful grounds. The course has rough terrain with many bumps and small hills and takes you through the woods behind the farm. Strollers and bikes, unfortunately, are not allowed at the run due to this.
