8th Annual Park to Park 1/2 Marathon
April 30, 2016
Check us out on Facebook to view pictures from 2015 race day!
Experience the best views in the Shenandoah Valley on this 13.1 mile point to point course connecting Augusta County’s Stuarts Draft Park to Waynesboro’s Ridgeview Park. Gently rolling hills, mountain vistas and beautiful serene river crossings make this Park to Park course a must do spring race. The race will be completely supported with fully stocked aid stations and a post race party at the finish line.
Check out the Park to Park course map in REVERSE! That’s right, we are changing things up this year. For the first seven years of the race participants ran from Waynesboro’s Ridgeview Park to Stuarts Draft Park. This year we will be starting in Stuarts Draft and ending at Ridgeview Park in Waynesboro. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months!
