Story and photos by Julie Black

First run in 1992, this race has been part of the nationally celebrated Red Ribbon Week, held to promote a drug-free lifestyle, for years. The course began with a long downhill from the Mountaineer Mall south of Morgantown, made a loop around White Park and the surrounding neighborhood before returning to a challenging uphill finish. Attractions included long-sleeved T-shirts, random prizes and pizza and other refreshments.

The race is also part of the Morgantown area Grand Prix Series of races. Times are usually great here and runners in contention for the Grand Prix Series prize pickup some points in this race.
