About This Activity

The Second Annual Great Bay Run in Cape Charles 5k race and 1mile fun run/walk will be held on June 21, 2014.  Get your summer into full swing by taking part in this festive event!

The 5k course will wind around the beautiful town of Cape Charles, Virginia, located near the mouth of Chesapeake Bay on Virginia's scenic Eastern Shore. A 1 mile fun run/walk will be offered as well. The 1 mile course uses the same start and finish lines as the 5k event.

Ample parking is available in Kings Creek Marina.

In the 5k division, three age group awards will be given in the following categories:












Overall awards will be given to the top male and female finishers in the 5k and 1 mile fun run/walk (1st, 2nd, and 3rd places).

Pre-registered entrants are guaranteed a T-shirt.

The Great Bay Run in Cape Charles aims to bring a competitive and fun racing experience to the Eastern Shore. The race is directed by Eric Hack and Eva Noonan. Eric moved to the Eastern Shore of Virginia seven years ago to take a teaching position at Broadwater Academy. Bringing his passion for running with him, he started cross country and track teams at the school. He coaches both teams, along with Eva.

Proceeds from the race will be equally split between the teams that the co-directors coach as well as The Boys and Girls Club of the Eastern Shore.  The Boys and Girls Club of the Eastern Shore seeks to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Food and drink will be complimentary after the race.

Volnteers will be at every intersection to monitor traffic.
