5K run/walk (3.1 miles) slightly up-hill at the beginning and end. Large loop including historic Main Street in South Boston, VA. Starts and finishes at the YMCA. There will be a water station 1.5 miles from the start. In addition, there will be post race refreshments.
Instead of the usual Sunday, we'll be meeting at 1pm next Saturday at the Crossing downtown to do anywhere from 12 to 15 miles. This will free up everyone's Sunday to spend time with Mom :) ...keep reading >>
This is the return of a race that started a long time ago. Come join me and celebrate my birthday.
Saturday was a great day for a race. Hope you had a good day and acheived all your goals. Remember the reason for this event and those affected by cancer. Let Karen Johnston know what a great job she did in organizing this event. With people like Karen maybe one day we will beat cancer. Continue to support the Danville Cancer Association.
This event is just in the planning stages at the time. We will keep you updated as it progresses. The plan as of now is to make this a revival of the old N.C./VA Road Race 5K/15K that many of us old timers enjoyed in the 80's and 90's. The name of the race and the distances may be changed. The logistics of stageing a longer event such as a 15K on the road has changed in the last 15 or 20 years.
We have spots in the Marine Corps Marathon through our charity program
benefiting the Spina Bifida Association. If you have any members interested,
please have them contact me! Thank you!
