Half-Moon Outfitters raises $1500 for the Paris Mountain State Park Friends with the First Annual Moonshiner 5K Night Trail Race

GREENVILLE, SC (September 21, 2010) – On September 17th in Greenville, SC, Half-Moon Outfitters hosted the First Annual Moonshiner 5k Night Trail Race. Over 250 runners participated in this first annual sold-out event held at Paris Mountain State Park. Racers enjoyed the evening start and the run through the woods lit only by headlamps. The 5k race is the only night trail race of its kind in the southeast.

“It was the coolest event that I’ve ever been to” said Taylor Presley. “When else do you get to run through the woods at night with a trail of headlamps leading the way?”

Half-Moon Outfitters is especially grateful to all the sponsors who helped to make the race such a success including Smartwool, Mountain Hardwear, Black Diamond, Vasque, Superfeet and Atlanta Bread Company.

The proceeds from the race raised $1500 for the Paris Mountain State Park Friends. Based in Greenville, SC, the Paris Mountain State Park FRIENDS was formed to utilize the park for educational programs, to help improve the park’s physical attributes and to help the park rangers as requested.
