2014 Luray Earth Day 5K/1K Registration

Saturday, April 19, 2014

5K begins at 9:00am

Kids 1K begins at 10:00am

A couple of exciting changes for this year’s event:

  1. We have added a WALKER category for those who want to participate at a walking pace.  (Prizes will be awarded to the top M/F walkers.)
  2. We have added an UNTIMED category for those who want to run or walk without the hassle of having your time posted on the Internet for all eternity.
  3. ALL PROCEEDS from this year’s event will be split between Luray Elementary School’s new Girls on the Run Club and Springfield Elementary’s efforts to build a running track. (We LOVE our young runners!!)

As always, Page County kids can register for FREE with a paying adult.

We hope you’ll join us for the 4th annual Luray Earth Day 5K/1K on the Greenway!
