Come on out to the Second Annual Run for the River 5k/10k, located just 25 minutes east of downtown Charlottesville. Hit the soft surface and experience the head- waters of the York River Basin and the Green Springs National Historic Landmark District.
Designated in 1974, this area consists of a unique

low their original course.
Enjoy the view as you run through some of the 14,000 acres within the historic district protected by conservation easements. These easements are designed to maintain the integrity of the historic district for future generations by limiting land divisions, preserving the buildings,
supporting agriculture, and protecting the breathtaking views in the area. The National Park Service, Virginia Outdoors Foundation, Historic Green Springs, Inc.
among others work to see that the easements are upheld and the historic district is preserved in perpetuity.
Run for a Cause. The proceeds from this run will benefit the South Anna Monitoring Project and the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay. Volunteers from the Green Springs community have been collecting water quality data, moni-
toring the health of the river, and promoting conservation for over eight years. The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay is a regional nonprofit organization that builds and fosters partnerships to protect and to restore the Bay and its rivers.
All participants will receive a commemorative
finish photo and gift bag.
Pre-registrants will receive a t-shirt.
