Brought to you by Chiles Peach Orchard and Crozet Running, this community event is a fundraiser for the Western Albemarle Rescue Squad. The race begins at 8AM (check in the day before, or beginning at 7AM the morning of the race). The race course is a scenic out-and-back down Jarman Gap Road. At the end of the race, join us for our Pancake Breakfast (included in your race registration). In our first 3 years, we have raised over $5000.00 for WARS. This race has become a traditional community event, and we are excited to bring it to you again!
Online registration will begin this summer – stay tuned!!
Registration fee includes a race t-shirt (if you register prior to 8/20) and our all-you-can-eat Pancake Breakfast. Runner gift bags also will be handed out, courtesy of our local sponsors.
Kids (under 12): $10.00
All proceeds benefit our volunteer Western Albemarle Rescue Squad.
