Saturday, Nov 7: Harvest Hustle w/ Boys Home of Virginia!

On November 7th, Boys Home of Virginia will host their 4th annual fall fundraising event, the Harvest Hustle! They are excited to offer a 5K, 10K, and half-marathon again this year. Last year they doubled their total racers and met their fundraising goals! Hopefully, this year will be just as wonderful.

There will be a few changes this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.  They will be handling registration differently, there will be staggered race starts, and everything will be well spaced out with plenty of hand sanitizer available. Volunteers will be wearing gloves and masks. Event organizers will be doing everything they can to make this a safe and worry-free experience for everyone. More detailed information will be sent to registered racers closer to the event.

All three races will begin and end at the Intervale Trailhead of the Jackson River Scenic Trail, in Covington, VA. The event will offer aid stations along the race routes with mini pre-packaged water bottles and Gatorades available. T-shirts and participation medals will be available for all runners, as well as individual pre-packaged snacks and drinks before and after the race.

Awards for each race will begin approximately 30 minutes after the top three men and women racers cross the finish line. Top finishers male and female overall and top three male and female in each age category will receive awards. Age categories are: 11-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+.
