WVR always has a great showing at this race and unfortunately we have not been promoting it as the race has fallen into new hands this year and they (The Rotary Club) has been late getting out information. We would love to continue to support this race on Saturday and see a strong presence of WVR members running.
This is a fun race that always has low registration numbers, so WVR always cleans up on the awards :) A great chance to get an awesome winners plaque!
The 8am start time is also very attractive! Register Here early for cheapest pricing: http://www.raceit.com/search/event.aspx?event=755e69ab-d341-45b2-948a-8062f1da1361.aspx
We also need volunteers for this race! If you are able to man the WVR Booth and help us promote the Swamp House Half Marathon and WVR as a running club, please reply when you RSVP that you are volunteering. You just need to be there by 7:30am to set up with the help of Jennifer Lockrem and Teri Sapp
