Chessie Trail Supporters, Runners Thanked

Friends Of The Chessie Trail wishes to thank the more than 70 runners who registered for the Chessie Trail Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K.

“We appreciate that even though this year’s races had to be run virtually, runners were still willing to support the Chessie Trail,” said a spokesman.

The organization also wishes to thank sponsors Walkabout Outfitters, Lex Running Shop, Rockbridge Vineyards, The Southern Inn, Halcyon Days Cider Co., Sugar Maple Trading Co., Red Newt Bikes, and Ragged Mtn. Running Shop, for collectively donating 20 gift certificates which were given as prizes for finishers, and the other sponsors, CornerStone Bank, Great Valley Brewery, Heliotrope Brewery, and Charles Barger & Son.

And lastly, a special thanks to those runners who ran their races in their Halloween costumes, which provided much excitement and joy for everyone on the Chessie.
