Ambulance Chase
And the lawyers chase begins...
Numerous West Virginia University (WVU) Law School students were sweating bullets yesterday, but it had nothing to do with court. A scorching spring sun, enough to make anyone's micro-fibers melt,, brought summer-like heat. Wearing sport jackets, three-piece suits, and a pair of half inch covered heels law students lead the race in -fine fashion. Awarded with applause and snickers, the traditional ambulance chase up Rotary Street launched the 5K into action.

Four years strong and Morgantown Area Grand Prix's second event of the series, the Ambulance Chase route is the same as the Backbay Snowflake 5K path. Folks race down and around the paved roads of Suncrest. Ending with a summer-style BBQ that is hard to beat, this 5K finishes by Krepps Park.

Hot Day for First Place

The Ladies Race

The WVU College of Law Student Bar Association donates all of the race proceeds to the West Virginia Senior Legal Aid. Senior Legal Aid provides free civil legal services to economically and socially needy West Virginians over age 60. Last year's race resulted in a donation of over $6000, and this year's race is sure to bring in even more. Thanks to everyone for their support and participation.
