This fun event has something for everyone! The certified course will begin and end at The Intervale Trail Head of The Jackson River Scenic Trail in Covington, Virginia. The trail follows an old railroad bed of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. The course has a smooth crushed gravel surface and is mostly flat with some light hills. The trail follows its namesake river, winding it's way through small communities, cultivated fields, and small patches of woodland. It isn't uncommon to see wildlife along the way.

Unique Awards will be given to the top 3 overall male and female finishers of the marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K races.  The top three finishers in each age group will receive special recognition. Age groups are determined by participation. The awards ceremony will be at Intervale Trail Head immediately after the race. Refreshments will be provided for all race participants. 

*Strollers will be allowed in the 1 mile and 5k event and will start in the back at the start line.

*Register by June 9th if you want a T-shirt!!! You WILL want one and you will be upset that I don't have any left. Believe me, it happens every year! :)
