Run History: . . . In 1998 Jody and Dan Lehmann, with the help of friends and neighbors, organized this event in their small mountain community of Helvetia. It was their first attempt at race directing. The run and walk has never outgrown the village but continues to bring about 70 runners to enjoy the simple beauty of this spot in southern Randolph County. All proceeds go to benefit the Helvetia Community Fair Association.
