Description

Join us on September 9, 2017 on the Roanoke River Greenway for the inaugural Run/Walk for Boys Home 5k. The event will start and finish at Wasena Park in Roanoke. The proceeds from the race will benefits Boys Home of Virginia. The event will feature a free Kids’ Fun Run at 8:45 AM and a 5k Run/Walk at 9:15 AM.

There is something quite soothing about running a race on the Roanoke River Greenway. First, there is no vehicular traffic to contend with; you're out there with runners, walkers and cyclists, enjoying the river and your fellow runners/walkers. Second, with an out and back greenway course you'll be able to cheer on the leaders as they head back toward the finish and get cheered on yourself as you head back toward the finish. It's that extra charge you get to help motivate yourself for a challenging experience.
