Event Information

The High Bridge Half Marathon and 5K race is 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. 20130907_10The half marathon is named for and crosses the historic High Bridge twice. The historic High Bridge runs through the Heart of Virginia in Prince Edward and Cumberland Counties. Today, the bridge is the centerpiece of the 31-mile High Bridge Trail State Park that includes the historic commercial district of Farmville. 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. Moister wicking shirts will be included with registration for half marathon runners. Cotton t-shirts will be included with registration for 5K runners. Stick around afterwards for the Riverside Festival which 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.
