2016-10-09: Hokie Half & 5K

Hokie Half Marathon Bird

Parts of the Huckleberry Trail served as over 5 miles of October’s Hokie half-marathon, commonly known as the “Hokie Half”. Run concurrently with the Hokie 5K, the half-marathon was held on October 9th with more than 1300 people participating in the race. The weather was cool and partly cloudy, perfect conditions for such a long run. Volunteers and runners met at the VT-CRC headquarters building on Pratt Drive to get their bibs and line up for the race. This was the 4th year for the Hokie Half, sponsored by Carilion Clinic and other local companies. For more photos, see the Hokie Half Facebook page and the main Hokie Half website.
