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. After years of dedicated service, Steve Taggart has announced his retirement as the Event Director. In recognition of his outstanding contributions, FICO will now take on the coordination and hosting of these cherished events, with the goal of honoring Taggart’s legacy, supporting the local community of athletes, and continuing to raise funds for deserving local clubs and non-profit organizations.
