Gallop through history!

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19 concerns, Arthurdale Heritage is bringing you a fun and unique way to still get out of the house, see Arthurdale, and participate in our 5k! Participants will have from May 20 - June 20 to run the same 5k course with an interactive course map powered by the app RaceJoy. Complete the course in Arthurdale on your own time and upload your results through the app.

As you run through Arthurdale's charming historic district, you will learn about some of the unique aspects of our community through audio snippets. While the goats won't be running with you this year, the course runs past them and we encourage you to say hello!* To view our course maps, simply download the RaceJoy app and search for "Arthurdale Heritage Goat Gallop."

You can register for $25 anytime before the race is complete on June 20. All participants in the 5k Run/Walk will receive a t-shirt, and age-bracket winners will receive a medal. The Kids Race is open for ages (10 and under) and is $3 to participate.**

For over thirty years Arthurdale Heritage, Inc. (AHI) has worked to preserve the history of the nation's first New Deal Homestead Community, started under the Roosevelt Administration. AHI was created by volunteers, many of whom were original homesteaders, to preserve their family and community history. AHI has since become essential to maintaining northern West Virginia's economy through tourism and promoting education about the Depression Era.
