About This Activity

You've done your Halloween race, and your Turkey Trot is still a few weeks away.  So... what will you do in early November?

You are invited to support the Fisher House Foundation as you compete in the Sumerduck Seven Miler, or enjoy a Two Mile Walk/Fun-run!  The race course is on gently rolling roads through beautiful rural Sumerduck, with one challenging hill in the 6th mile.  The fun-run is flat and easy.  The Church is a lovely setting for the start/finish.

Race Location:     Sumerduck Baptist Church, 5354 Sumerduck Rd, Sumerduck, VA
Sleep Late:            The race is at 3:00PM.   No need to get up early!
Running Weather: An early November afternoon should offer ideal running weather... cool but not cold.
Why 7 Miles?         The distance is motivated by the course itself.  It starts and finishes in the left of Sumerduck.  You go one mile out, around a 5 mile loop, and 1 mile back.  No annoying 180s to break your rhythm!  The distance just happens to work out to almost exactly 7 miles. 
Course:                  These are the type of roads runners love to run on.  Just enough elevation change to be interesting, a beautiful rural setting, and a tough hill 1.5 miles from the finish that will test your resolve and provide an opportunity to make a move on the competition.  There will be a water station at the halfway point.
Low Entry Fee:       This is a runner friendly race!  Adults race for $15, Kids for $5, and the fun-run is only $10.  Why spend $40 to run a 10K when you can race 7 Miles for only $15?
T-Shirt Optional:     Some people want a race T-shirt, while some don't.  We let you choose.
                                 NOTE: T-Shirts must be ordered by 3:00 PM Friday, Oct 21!  DEADLINE PASSED, BUT...
IF YOU ARE REGISTERING NOW AND STILL WANT A T-SHIRT, send me an email and I'll see if I can put one aside for you (you can pay on race day).  We have a few extras, but I cant guarantee it.  The sooner you email the better, because I might be able to call and increase the order before T-Shirts are printed. -steve
Cash Prizes:           Yes, we give out actual money to the top 7 runners!  $50 first prize!  Running books and gift certificates for gender and age-group winners.  AND YOU CAN WIN IN MULTIPLE CATEGORIES!

This race is old-school fun for people who love to run and compete!  Come on out!  -steve
