We thoroughly enjoyed working with the BCS Marathon crew, and we hope to make it an annual tradition! We’ve already been discussing plans for next year’s race. Thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors, runners, and spectators who made the Night Trail Run successful. Be sure to follow @RoyaltyPecans and @BCSMarathon on Twitter and Facebook to stay up to date on future fun events.
We were happy to host the second race in the BCS Marathon Race Series on May 18, 2013. During this Night Trail Run through our pecan orchard, runners of all ages followed an off-road trail guided by glow sticks. Many runners were decked out with headlamps, glowing bracelets and necklaces, and other lighted accessories.
Before the race started, runners and spectators were welcome to hang out on our veranda, play Frisbee or baseball on our lawn, wander down into our Welcome Center orchard, and enjoy the atmosphere. Since our gift shop was open late, many visitors were able to do some shopping and relax with a glass (or two) of wine.
After the race, runners were treated to fresh fruit and delicious pecan pancakes by Cafe Eccell while they dined under moonlight and stars. Thanks to Livewire Productions, we had some extra lighting for the night. Winners also received gift bags full of gourmet goodies donated by Royalty Pecan Farms!
