    1. Run to Read Half Marathon . . . [Results/Photos]

    January 5, 2014
    Prickett's Fort State Park, Fairmont, WV

    Organized in 2006, this event moves to a new day (Sunday) and start time (2pm) in 2011. The course is a double out and back on 2 adjoining rail trails. The first section is 5 miles long and goes through the historic Meredith Tunnel. The race finishes on the second trail which has a crushed limestone surface. Over 250 racers finished in 2013.

    2. Run to Read 5K . . . [Results/Photos]

    July 25, 2014
    East-West Stadium, Fairmont, WV

    Organized in 1999, this is the "granddaddy" of the Run to Read Races. The nearly flat, paved course goes around Fairmont Senior High. There will be a private post-race pool party free to runners their families next door at the 12th Street Pool.

    3. Run to Read One Mile . . . [Results/Photos]

    July 25, 2014
    East-West Stadium, Fairmont, WV
    That's right, the same day and location as the 5K. No worries, they are held one after other so you can run both!
