About This Activity

The 2nd Fanta 5kRun/1mileWalk will begin at the upper lever Washington Park Lick Run Greenway. This greenway is a very scenic route that starts out in the open area of the park we will begin at the 2.0 mile marker as goes into the woods by another part of Lick Run park , through a neighborhood that leads with winding turns, curves, hills and crosses over the interstate 581. Fleet Feet water station will be set up in Best Buy's Parking lot and that is where you will turn around at the 3.5 mile marker and come back to the starting line/finish line. The walkers route will be 1 mile long and it will wrap around the upper level Washington park area. This race was named after our beloved Sorority Sister Sabrina Rucker Reed who was killed by her estranged husband in a visitation exchange for their daughter. Fanta was Sabrina's line name as she became a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. on the campus of Radford University. We honor her legacy by supporting Sabrina's place that was named after her so that children can safely visit both parents without the parents having to cross paths.
