Powhatan Trail 5K on Saturday July 22

Clara Byrd Baker Elementary School and the beautiful, shaded Powhatan Creek Trail will be the site for the 3rd Powhatan Creek Trail 5K on Saturday, July 22nd.  Proceeds from the race will benefit the Colonial Road Runners, and be used to offset expenses associated with competing in USA Track and Field national championship events.

The one mile fun run/walk will start at 8:00 am, followed by the 5K run/walk at 8:30 am.  Both events will take place on the paved, mostly shaded Powhatan Creek Trail, and start and finish in the Clara Byrd Baker Elementary School parking lot.  Reception with refreshments and awards ceremony will follow the 5K in the school cafeteria.

The fun run is free (t-shirts can be purchased for $10), and early bird registration for the 5K is $25 (t-shirt included).  After July 14th and race day, the 5K is $30.  For more information or to register, go to or contact race director Greg Dawson at 757-817-2512 or
