If you can run or walk just 5 miles on May 31, then you can compete in the News and Sentinel Half Marathon on Aug. 21.
The 18th River City Runners and Walkers Half Marathon Clinics will start on May 31, with a five mile training loop and building up to the 13.1-mile distance over a period of 12 weeks. The River City Runners and Walkers Club will supply water and sports drinks at two or two and 1/2 mile intervals along the course for anyone who wants to participate in training for The Parkersburg News and Sentinel Half Marathon. Everyone is welcome to participate. Club membership is not necessary. Train with others at your pace, however fast (or not so fast), make friends, and get in shape for Parkersburg’s biggest sporting event.
