High Bridge Half Marathon and 5K
Sep 7 2013
The High Bridge Half Marathon and 5K race will be held on an out-and-back course beginning in Farmville Downtown at High Bridge Trail State Park Plaza. The park is a rail to trail conversion that is wide, level and has very little grade. The trail surface consists of finely crushed limestone that is well packed. The half marathon will cross the historic High Bridge twice. High Bridge is nearly a half mile long and towers 125 feet above the Appomattox River.
Runners will enjoy on-course support with spirit groups, live music, water/Gatorade stations every 2 miles, Gu energy gel to give you a boost as you enter the home stretch, and Port-O-Potties along the way. The first ever High Bridge Riverside Festival will thrill and entertain families, friends, and fans with live music, food, beer, fun things to do and buy, plus an inflatable amusement area for kids.
