2020 Cheat Fest 5k (cancelled)

Sat May 2, 2020 Kingwood, WV 26537 US Directions

Cheat Fest 5K

8:00AM EDT - 12:00PM EDT
CheatFest 5K is going VIRTUAL!

CheatFest may be cancelled, but the Cheat still flows! Join us in our very first Virtual 5K run to benefit Friends of the Cheat and the Preston County Rail Trails. A virtual race is a race where you complete the distance at your own pace, in your own time, during a given window of activity. We will have more detail with regard to bibs and awards as they become available.

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions.

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.
