In 2020, we made the difficult – but necessary – decision to cancel “This Race is for the Birds!” to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 and keep volunteers and participants safe. We are so grateful to all who registered, our sponsors, and the volunteers.
The cancellation did not deter more than 50 people from participating in the alternative virtual event by posting ‘action’ photos on our Virtual Race Facebook Group. Our virtual registered participants were eligible to receive giveaways which have been randomly selected. The winners were:
- Karli Rogers – Two Rivers Treads gift certificate
- Sara Thomsen – Two Rivers Treads gift certificate
- Angela Hollida – Two Rivers Treads gift certificate
- Herb Peddicord – Two Rivers Treads gift certificate
- Rachel Canty – Charm City Run gift certificate
- Judy Shremshock – Charm City Run gift certificate
- Annapurna Mahavadi – PVAS Membership
- Suzy Bauer – Entry to “This Race is for the Birds!” 2021
- Sarah Bechtel – Entry to “This Race is for the Birds!” 2021
- Diane Brookerson – “This Race is for the Birds!” water bottle
- Laura Bergmann – Mini hummingbird feeder
- Natalia Rhoe – Hummingbird feeder
- Amber Laskowsky – Finch sock feeder
- Jennie Brockman – Wild Delight block “Bugs and Berries”
We look forward to hosting the 21st annual “This Race is for the Birds” in Spring 2021!
“This Race Is For The Birds!” is a running/walking event sponsored by the Potomac Valley Audubon Society. We offer two professionally timed races, a 10K and a 5K, however, we encourage both runners and walkers alike! Sign up for these events and enjoy the adventure of running or walking on non-technical cross country trails that wind through fields and forests of Broomgrass Farm Community, and along beautiful Back Creek in Berkeley County, WV. In addition, there is a free Kids’ Fun Run for children 10 and under. All proceeds support the Potomac Valley Audubon Society’s programs and preserves.
