The Town of Purcellville’s inaugural “Train to Run” 5K Race and Fun Run will be held Sunday, Oct. 8.
Designed as an easy, casual 5K course, the race will take participants through the downtown, on the W&OD Trail, and through neighborhoods to the finish at the Bush Tabernacle.
Race proceeds will benefit the Town Council’s Youth Sports Grant Program, which provides funding to local sports organizations to benefit their activities and provide opportunities to youth who may otherwise be unable to participate. Last year, $5,250 was given to area youth sports programs to increase participation and activities for youth.
The race starts at 8:30 a.m. at the Bush Tabernacle. Runners with all skill levels are encouraged to participate. Registration is open, and more information is available at purcellvilleva.gov/race. More details will be provided as the date of the event approaches.
The Economic Development Advisory Committee is looking for additional sponsors. Current sponsors include Unlimited Piping and Plumbing, MVB Bank, and Purcellville Gateway/ECHO Realty. Sponsor information and benefits are listed on the race website.
