About This Activity

The Pearisburg Eye Associates Eye Run is a 5k/10K run/walk open to all runners, walkers or anyone in between.  The course starts and ends on Tazewell street in pearisburg, it is a 5K scenic circle through the town of pearisburg.   With reguard to elevation, visit Cedar Rapids Iowa for dead flat and fast, the town of pearisburg offers a fair course that has some hills, much like the rest of southwest VA.   I have posted map and elevation information from a garmin gps used on the race course should you want some detail on distances and elevation.

Awards will be given for top male and female runners including a pair of Nike Running sunglasses.  This years age group award winners will receive a pair of Balega Hidden Comfort running socks, if you haven't tried a pair of these they are amazing, if you have tried a pair then you are probably smiling just thinking about them.  (2nd and 3rd place awards TBD) There will also be some raffle items, including another pair of Nike sunglasses which any race participant will be eligible to win.
