Upcoming Pre-Race Events

Anti-Trafficking Expo & Race Packet Pickup

We're pleased to announce this year's packet pickup event will include an anti-trafficking expo featuring 9 organizations working to bring freedom and do justice! Each organization will highlight their work to combat human trafficking and provide information on how you can get involved in the fight.

Fun for the Whole Family

In addition to the anti-trafficking expo, Lynchburg-based Pier 19 will provide live music and multiple food vendors will be on site selling an assortment of foods and desserts. For the kids, there will be a bounce house and inflatable slide compliments of FunZone Inflatables.

In short, the packet pickup will be a fun but meaningful event. Come hear what's being done in Virginia and internationally to combat trafficking.
