Crittenton Plans Second Annual Trail Run

Crittenton Services, Inc. is planning its Second Annual Founding Father’s Trail Run/Walk 5K on Saturday, June 11, 2016 at 9:00 a.m. at Grand Vue Park, Moundsville, WV.

The Founding Father’s Trail Run/Walk 5K offers a challenging off-road course for runners and walkers. It will take place on Grand Vue’s scenic hiking trail, winding through the rugged hills of the park. This course is 3.1 miles (5K), beginning and ending adjacent to Grand Vue’s Red Barn.

The Crittenton agency began in Wheeling as the Florence Crittenton Home 121 years ago. Charles Crittenton was an active social reformer of the late 19th Century, organizing more than 100 Crittenton homes to help women in need. The race is to honor him and will raise money for Crittenton’s much-needed services to children and adults from across West Virginia.

“We are thrilled to offer this exciting, unique event again this year. Last year’s participants loved the course. We look forward to an even more exciting, successful run again this year,” said Stacy Rich, Director of Marketing, Crittenton Services.

Participants will receive a dri-fit race shirt, a participation medal and a light lunch following the race. There are also several door prizes, including a round of golf at the Moundsville Country Club and gift certificates to The 19th Hole.

This is a timed race. Age groups and awards are as follows:

·         Top 3 Male/Female Runners
