Depart the Visitor Center parking lot to the right and follow Main Street to the stop sign and turn left. Continue along the town sidewalks approximately one mile and turn left onto Glebe Road. After another mile, turn left onto Church Street which ends at Main Street right in front of the Visitor Center.
The route is primarily along sidewalks and backroads but is not closed to traffic so use caution. ‘Caution Runner’ signs will be placed along the route along with turn arrows at each turn along the course.
Get Involved. Thanks to Doug, William, Carleton & Emily we are all set for event support for the Cookie Connection (water stop, packet pick up and course safety). Does that sound like something you’d be interested in for a future event? Check out opportunities for volunteering and reach out if interested/ available.
2020 Dec 5th at 9am in Mathews County, Virginia.
Sadly – another race cancelation. This time, not due to COVID-19 restrictions but due to low registration. The event organizers have made the difficult decision to pull the event off the schedule and have notified & refunded the participants. We regret having to make this decision but feel we can offer a better experience if the event has a minimum participation level.
Race Day Details
Pre-registration Only – no race day registration will be available. This reduces the number of volunteers we need and helps limit contact between volunteers and you.
Race Start Area will be divided into ‘lanes’ that are six feet apart. Groups of 5-6 people will take off followed closely by another group until all runners are on the course.
Packet Pickup – plan to arrive at the Visitor Center by 8:30am to pick up your race bib & chip, get last minute instructions and do any usual race preps.
Chip Timing – the race clock will start as you pass over the start line and will stop when you finish. Therefore, your time will be accurate even with the spacing at the start area.
