The Sandy Bottom 8-Hour: It's Just A Training Run is at Sandy Bottom Nature Park in Hampton, VA. This is your chance to dust off the winter cobwebs and make some new running buddies while on a training run on a flat, fast, 3.75 mile loop. 

There is a strong emphasis on "It's Just A Training Run" - it's like you're running with 149 of your best-running friends.

It's an old school, low-key event. We'll have lap counters (you yell out your bib number, we write it down). We'll have some aid for you, but you're encouraged to bring your own, too. There is a competitive element, though! So we'll have awards for top runners. If you set a new overall course record or women's or men's course record, you'll win your race entry fee back.
