There will be a fitness walk, open men, open women, kids' mile, and a children's 100 yd. "Tot Trot."
This is a race sponsored by the Shenandoah Valley Runners. The race was started by Kathy Smart. It is now directed by Mark Stickley, owner of Runners Retreat. The finish line is at the courthouse on the mall in downtown Winchester, just 100 yards (more or less) from the store. Proceeds for the race benefit the Winchester Shelter for Abused Women, now known as the Laurel Center.
