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.
Registration: Pre-Registration is open! You can register on the day of the race at the Preston County Country Club between 8:00-9:30am.
When: 10:00 AM, Saturday, May 2, 2020
