This is an in-person event, with a virtual option. We understand how hard it is to find an actual event these days, but we are taking all necessary steps to ensure a safe experience for all.
We hope you will join us for a morning out in historic downtown Lynchburg! What better way to get your weekend started than running or walking a 4 mile event where you can enjoy what Lynchburg has to offer after the event. If you can't make it out in person to join us, consider joining in on the fun through our virtual 4 mile option.
4 Miler: The course starts near the 3 mile post on Blackwater Creek Trail which is near the Point of Honor Bridge (map provided below). The paved, out and back, course is mostly shaded and features a 450 foot train tunnel. The first half out is gradually uphill and the second half is equally downhill for a fast negative split finish. There will be one water stop at the turn around.
Virtual 4 Miler: For those who can't make the event in person consider joining in the fun virtually!
