Stay Fit and Connected

 For over a decade and in partnership with organizer Steve Taggart with “TaggRun,” we have hosted these three-part series 5K runs. Participants can sign for one or all three of the events and observe the developing stages of pecans and changes in the orchard.

Nut Run

Early in the spring, when the temperatures are still fresh and the trees are awakening. Some foliage has developed and there may or may not be flowers in the trees.

Breeze in the Trees

When it’s hot out there runners find a piece of heaven in the orchad. The foliage is at its fullest which creates a protective canopy. At this stage, pecans are in mid growth.

Pecan Classic

Leaves are turning yellow, husks are drying out and pecans are ready for harvest. Temperatures can be cool, but extremely suitable for this kind of activity.
