Description

 

About Sandman

9th annual Sandman Extreme for Excellence Half Marathon starts in downtown Wytheville, Va., snow or shine, at the recreation center at 250 S 4th Street. The run descends in the first mile to a crossing of Reed Creek at 2,100 feet elevation, before beginning a 4.5 mile climb to the top of Sand Mt. at 3,100'. The climb to the top is on hard surface road, with about 4 miles on packed gravel. A shorter 9 mile alternate run is available without the full climb. A 5K option will also be avaiable this year. Winners in age categories will receive customized tote bags. The event is a fundraiser for the Wythe County Public School Foundation for Excellence--we're all about excellence.

Pre-registration will close at midnight on Thursday, January 1th. You must pre-register by that date to be guaranteed a long-sleeved t-shirt.

 T-SHIRTS ARE NOT GUARANTEED ON DAY OF RACE WITHOUT PRE-REGISTRATION AND WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR ORDER
