Runners will be staged at the Wharf Street Parking Garage in the Wharf District near Oliverio’s Restaurant. Following Clay Street to Mechanic Street, runners will turn left on Don Knotts Boulevard, cross Decker’s Creek, take a left at Garrett Street and right onto the Caperton Rail Trail. The course continues northwest on the paved trail to the WVU Core Arboretum.
Upon entering the Arboretum, runners will encounter a quarter mile of single-track dirt trail until the mid-point of the loop back on the rail trail. Runners will complete the final two miles on the rail trail to the finish line at the Hazel Ruby McQuain Riverfront Park – just before the Decker’s Creek Bridge. Except for a slight uphill approach to the WVU Core Arboretum, the course is primarily flat or downhill.
Walkers will go south on the trail to a turnaround point past Morgantown Lock and Dam and return to the finish line behind Oliverio’s Restaurant.
FREE PARKING at the Wharf Street Parking Garage donated by Morgantown Parking Authority. Limited exit during awards ceremonies from 8 pm to 10 pm.

At the young age of 39, I took on the greatest challenge of my life, an effort that pushed me both mentally and physically like I had never been challenged before. I completed a 3452 mile 100 day run across America, capped off with a 100 mile finish from Annapolis MD to Rehoboth Beach DE in under 24 hours, all to raise awareness and money in support of the men and women I consider my heroes, those that have worn and now wear the US Military’s uniform.
My book, “Freedom Run”, was released in April of 2013, detailing my journey to honor those who have bravely served, and describes the life-changing events of my run across America. MORE>
