Charlottesville Men's and Women's 4 Miler Races Quickly Approaching


June 13, 2013

The 9th Annual Charlottesville Men's Four Miler is happening this Father's Day, June 16th at 7:30 am.

The race's goal is to raise awareness and money for men's health issues and prostate cancer.

"if you walk or you are a slow runner...or you are a moderately fast runner it does not matter," said Ragged Mountain Running Co-Owner Mark Lorenzoni. "If you are a guy get up Sunday morning and come out and participate cause it's a great celebration and all the dollars benefit a good cause."

The course takes you through UVa grounds and ends on the 50-yard line in Scott Stadium. Registration is still open and more information can be found at this website.

The Women's Four Miler isn't until August 31, but the training program starts this weekend.

The training program is open to all women, either runners or walkers, who want to take part in the 11-week health and wellness program.

All of the money raised in the training program and race goes toward the UVa Cancer Center Breast Care Program.

Keggie Mallett, A Pink Lady with W4MTP, said, "We look forward to encouraging women to participate in this training program. They don't have to be running the race at all. This is all about fitness and health but we encourage people who haven't to come out."
