Three Great Events!

 17th Annual Run the Valley 5K - 10K - 1/2 Marathon

Saturday September 20th, 2014

Badin, NC

Saturday, September 21, 2013

One of the most scenic, challenging and economical races in the region.

Rated as the top Regional Race to run by Vac & Dash in 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012.

Run the Valley started as a small 10K race in 1998. Since then, the small town race has grown into one of the regions top events. It's a great family event with runners having a 5K, 10K & 1/2 Marathon to choose from. Plus, it's part of the Best of Badin Festivities.

The 1/2 Marathon takes runners through Morrow Mountain State Park to the top of the very scenic Morrow Mountain!

Ran the Valley to make sure pot holes are covered and did some recon work to see if the three-legged blind in one-eye dog was roaming around.
