Participants in the 10k-5k run assemble at Carter Park before 8 a.m. to begin a scenic, winding route along the railroad tracks, around the Randolph-Macon campus and through town streets.  The routes are professionally chip-timed by Commonwealth Timing and serve as marathon qualifying events.  The run is planned by a group of women small in number and big in energy.  The GFWC Ashcake Woman’s Club organizes the race to raise funds to support local groups.  Because of the generous contributions of many businesses and individuals, over the years, the race has generated over $178,000! This year’s proceeds will be given to:

  • CIRCLES Ashland – offering a community-based approach to solving poverty and homelessness
  • The Arc of Hanover – providing support services to about 300 persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities annually
  • Wings of Hope Ranch – a horse rescue organization that in turn provides riding opportunities for children facing challenges and conflicts

There’s a church challenge with the largest church group receiving a cash award.  Medals are given to the top 2 men and women in both the 10k and 5k.  Register early to ensure you receive an event T-shirt.  Visit for more information and to register individually or for a group.
