Community Roots: Selections from the Local Legacies Project
Collage of Local Legacies

Virginia Ten-Miler

Each year over 1,200 people complete the most challenging 10-mile course in the country - the last mile and a half is uphill - in the streets of Lynchburg, dubbed "Hill City." World-class runners, including marathon winners and Olympic medalists, run alongside local citizens in this nationally and internationally acclaimed event. With support from 700 volunteers, the race raises funds for non-profit organizations and college scholarships. It was first held in 1974.

Originally submitted by: Bob Goodlatte, Representative (6th District).
