Four years ago, David Petsolt co-founded the Sandhills Race Series (SRS) with Sallie Beth Johnson, the Race Director for Aberdeen’s yearly Reindeer Fun Run. Their mission: to encourage and recognize participation and performance in local racing and provide support to organizations coordinating running events that promote fun, fitness, and community causes.
The races, which are a blast, bring out children, adults, Sandhills natives, and more runners from all over the country—with much, if not all, of the fees and donations going to charitable organizations like the Boys and Girls Club of the Sandhills.
Today, SRS announced its fall calendar, kicking of the series in two weeks with Pinehurst’s 1 in 8K and ending it with a bang—December’s beloved Reindeer Fun Run.
