Join us for Run For It on September 29th, by either participating in the 5k run or 2k walk to help support Friends of Blackwater. The race starts at 11:00 a.m., but we recommend getting to Davis by at least 10:00 a.m. to get ready and take a team photo. Run For It is a great community fundraiser organized by the Tucker Community Foundation, and it coincides with the Leaf Peepers Festival in Davis, so be sure to visit the festival when you finish running.
One option to become part of our team is to print out the race registration form and mail it to the Tucker Community Foundation at 737 William Ave, Suite 1, Davis, WV 26260, along with your entry fee. Make sure to write in Friends of Blackwater in the box that says “Identify Team”. While you can register in-person all the way up to 9:30 a.m. on September 29th, mailed registration forms should be in the mail no later than September 15th.
If you prefer to register online, visit the online registration site to get started. There will be a question on the online form that asks you if you want to be added to an existing team. Select yes, then select Friends of Blackwater from the dropdown list. Just like for mailed registration, please complete your online registration by September 15th.
What if you can’t make it to Davis on September 29th? You can still be there in spirit, by making a donation. Go to the online donation page for Friends of Blackwater’s Run For It team. 100% of your contributions will help FOB’s mission to protect the unique ecology, spectacular landscapes, outdoor recreation, and rich heritage of the High Allegheny Mountains.
We look forward to seeing you on race day! If you want to learn more about Run For It, visit the website, which is run by the Tucker Community Foundation.
