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!
