This is an iPlayOutside Covered Event!

A little Race History - Established in 1987, Gene's Run has become a local favorite. The event is the 3rd of 4 evening races on the circuit. The four-mile course starts in the Greenmont section of Morgantown, winds through South park to White Park and returns to a blazing downhill finish in front of that most venerable of local landmarks: Gene's Place.

Successfully overcoming the challenge of a combination of summer heat and a rolling course will reward finishers with free suds, soft drinks and fruit, courtesy of Gene's, as well as the satisfaction of running for a good cause.
