Description

The 8th annual Sandman Extreme for Excellence Half Marathon starts in downtown Wytheville, Virginia, snow or shine, at the old rec center. The run descends in the first mile to a crossing of Reed Creek at 2,100 feet elevation, before beginning a 4.5 mile climb to the top of Sand Mt. at 3,100'. The climb to the top is on hard surface road, with about 4 miles on packed gravel. A shorter 9 mile alternate run is available without the full climb. Winners in age categories will receive customized hour glasses.

All proceeds benefit the Foundation for Excellence, an organization supporting the love of learning through enrichment programs that enhance education in Wythe County Public Schools.
