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.

Past awards for male, female, and age category winners have been unique ceramic medallions created by a local artist 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.
