by | Jun 14, 2018 | Bottom Right Box, News

Lots of things to do in Davidson this weekend – including a Concert on the Green on Sunday Night.



Now Showing: At the Davidson Branch Library

June 15 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Davidson Branch Library

Bring your lunch and the family and enjoy a movie together.  Here’s what’s playing:

June 15: Coco. PG, 105 minutes.

 Summit Relay

June 16 @ 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

120 Patterson Court Circle
Davidson College

Come solo or as part of a team to the 3rd annual Summit Solstice 12-Hour Relay. On Saturday, June 16, from 7:00am-7:00pm, you and/or your team take turns running for 12 straight hours.

There will also be a one-mile kids’ color fun run, which will start at 4:00pm.

Where is it? The event will be based at Summit Coffee’s Outpost location, on the Davidson College campus. Runners will have the entire lawn to set up camp, mingle with other runners and our vendors, eat and drink, and more.

How Does It Work? There are three divisions: 1-person, 4-person and 8-person. There are three courses: 3-mile, 5-mile and 9.3-mile. Completing those loops earns you 1, 2 or 5 points, respectively. Each loop starts and ends at the Summit Outpost, and only one person from each team can run at a time. Until 5:00pm that is — when the rules change

Walking for as little as 30 minutes a day can have enormous health benefits. Walking was recently recognized by the Surgeon General of the United States as one of the single most important things we can do for our health. Will you join us in making health and happiness accessible to all? Bring the whole family and the dog but just come and join your fellow citizens in improving the health of our community.
