First run in 1979, this traditional Fourth of July event, sponsored by BOPARC and the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, is one of the area's oldest continuing races. The USA Track & Field-certified course is a challenging loop that starts at White Park and runs to Marilla Park & back. The race emphasizes lung cancer awareness.

MAGP Series: Only the 10K counts for Endurance points, not the 5K.

Course: All races are on paved roads. Traffic control will be provided by the Morgantown Police Department and other area volunteers. Course maps are available from BOPARC and will be included in all race packets. The challenging 10K course is a TAC-Certified 6.2 mile route looping from White Park to Marilla Park and back through residential neighborhoods. Water stops, with split times, will be located at the 1, 3 and 5 mile markers. The 5K Race, 5K Walk and 1 Mile Run are loops through White Park and the surrounding neighborhoods. Water stops with split times, for the 5K will be located at the 1 and 2 mile markers.

About this event: More than 170,000 people in the U.S are diagnosed with lung cancer every year; more than 163,000 people die from it each year"that's 18 people every hour, every day. Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of both men and women, yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and under-recognized diseases. It's time to do something about these statistics.

The Spirit & Breath Challenge was organized to create awareness about lung cancer risks and prevention, as well as the importance of early diagnosis and proper treatment.
