Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
The 6th annual Stuffed Strut 5K on the Friday after Thanksgiving, (Nov. 24) is a great way to run off those extra Thanksgiving calories instead of standing in line at some mall spending money. Conveniently located near the intersection of I-81 and I-77 in Wytheville, Virginia, the Stuffed Strut is a relatively flat run through the country side near pastoral Wytheville. Registration is available on site, at the Wytheville's Smallest Church, at 1090 Nye Road, Wytheville, Va. Come out and support the Community Food Kitchen and our exciting expansion into a Pay What You Can Restaurant, a project of HOPE, Inc.
The Stuffed Strut 5K begins at 9 am, on Friday, Nov. 24th, 2017. Pre-registration before Nov 10 is $25; afterwards and on the day of, registration is $30. This course is on hard surface roads, away from traffic, with rest stops and police support. Come run, or walk with us, and support a great cause, the Community Food Kitchen. Parking available on site, and registration opens at 8:15 am. We run rain or shine!
NOTE: If you are using mapping services, 1090 Nye Road is the right address for Wytheville's Smallest Church, but the mapping services will take you about a mile beyond the actual church. Look for the Pepsi plant entrance near the actual church.
