    Event History

    For more than 20 years, the Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners of Morgantown (BOPARC) and sponsors have worked hard to create a top-quality, family-oriented Grand Prix Event.

    In 1999, BOPARC teamed up the Sara Crile Allen & James Fredrick Allen Comprehensive Lung Cancer Program at the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center and the Alliance for Lung Cancer Advocacy, Support and Education (ALCASE) to sponsor a top+notch race that supports a great cause,lung cancer treatment and prevention.

    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.
