Join us at scenic Lee State Park to celebrate National Trails Day for the first annual Pedal to the Metal 5K run/walk sponsored by Nucor Steel-SC and Vulcraft-SC, both divisions of Nucor Corporation. The race course is mostly flat with hard packed dirt and a little asphalt. After the race, we'll have food and drinks for the whole family. Awards will be given for several age groups. So come out to Lee for a great race and fun-filled day!
Nucor Corporation is the Nation's largest recycler and is committed to being cultural and environmental stewards in their communities. Proceeds from the race will support Lee State Park. Originally built in the 1930s as a gateway to the Lynches River, the park encompasses 2,838 acres of diverse habitat that includes a vast hardwood floodplain forest, numerous artesian springs, a millpond, and sand hills.
