The Battle of Philippi was the first land battle of the Civil War and took place on June 3, 1861. The events of that morning culminated in the hasty retreat of the Confederate troops and the victors dubbed the encounter, "The Philippi Races."
In 1911, the people of Philippi began commemorating that first land battle with the Blue & Gray Reunion.

This year we are adding as a part of the festivities, The 1st Annual Blue & Gray 5K "The Philippi Races." It's going to be an exciting event and we hope you can join us!
