The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will hold its 16th annual "Race is for the Birds!" in Shepherdstown WV on Saturday, April 8, 2017.

The event will be held at the same location as last year: Wild Goose Farm at 293 Shepherd Grade Road.  

The farm is just across the road from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services' National Conservation Training Center, where the event used to be held. The Center is no longer able to host the event.

The 2017 event will include two professionally timed races—one 5 kilometers long and another 10 kilometers long.

There will also be a 1-mile "Fun Run" for children under 10 years of age.

In addition, adults and families who wish to walk or jog the 5K course at their own pace may do so.

The 5 and 10K races will follow non-technical cross-country trails through the farm's scenic fields, rolling hills and woods. The course will be suitable for all runners.

The 5 and 10K races will begin at 9:00 a.m. The children's Fun Run will be held at about 10:45 a.m.

The children's Fun Run will be free. The fees for the 5K and 10K races will be $25 and $30, respectively, for those who pre-register before March 25. Same-day registration will be $5 more for both distances.

Registration for the 5K and 10K races will be capped at 400 for both, so same-day registration may not be available.

To register, and for more information, go to the race website at www.raceforthebirds.org. Or contact Nan Johnson at 304-870-4414 or [email protected]

All proceeds will be used to support Potomac Valley Audubon Society programs, and all fees will be tax deductible.
