Burning Pine 5k & 10k
Saturday, September 7, 2013 from 7:30 AM to 10:30 AM (CDT)
The Burning Pine Run takes runners and walkers through the beautiful and historic Bastrop State Park - commemorating the anniversary of the 2011 Bastrop wildfires. The run was organized in 2012 by a group of local individuals impacted by the fires and the local YMCA.The fires devastated the community, destroying over 1600 homes and roughly 35,000 acres of land. The first annual Burning Pine Run had over 1000 participants and raised over $27,000 to support the restoration of Bastrop State Park and the Bastrop YMCA financial assistance program.
