About5k-1-e1343667707478

The morning of the Cheat River Music Festival starts with a 5K run that attracts athletes, walkers and families from West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and beyond. The funds raised support the general operations budget of FOC, helping us to carry out the parts of our mission that cannot be covered by grants. Runners start and finish at the Preston County Country Club, cruising along the gently rolling course through the grounds of the golf course, the rhododendron lined banks of Buffalo Creek, and along the mighty Cheat River.

Awards for male, female, and age category winners are unique ceramic medallions created by a local artist and stained with an iron oxide underglaze extracted from Acid Mine Drainage. These awards uniquely showcase an innovative way to use a by-product of the pollution we work so hard to correct.
