Saturday morning of the Cheat River Festival starts with a 5K run that attracts athletes, walkers and families from West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and beyond. The funds raised support the Preston Rail-Trails Committee, who, with support from FOC, have implemented 38 miles of new rail-trail in Preston County. Runners start and finish at the Preston County Country Club, cruising along the gently rolling course through the grounds of the golf course, the rhododendron lined banks of Buffalo Creek, and along the mighty Cheat River.
10:00 AM, Saturday, May 5th, 2018
Along with a beautiful run that promotes a healthy lifestyle, all runners who register by March 1st will receive a complimentary t-shirt, and all racers receive free admission to Cheat Fest on Saturday.
Awards for male, female, and age category winners have been unique ceramic medallions created by, Tamarack featured, Zen Clay artists and stained with an iron oxide underglaze extracted from Acid Mine Drainage. These awards uniquely showcase an innovative way to use a by-product of the pollution we work so hard to correct.
Registration: Pre-Registration will begin in 2019. You can register the day of the race at the Preston County Country Club. Day of registration is open between 8:00-9:30 am.
