Labor Day Edition of YBHPR


Special Labor Day Weekend edition of the Yorktown Beach Hills Pub Run! Monday September 4th at 8:30 AM. Beat the heat, crowds, and get a great workout in before celebrating the holiday. Meet at the freight shed green at 8:15 to sign in. Walk or run ten hills or create your own route.



The Inaugural ALL SHADES 5K walk/run will be held at Historic Jamestown Island on 18 September, 2021.

The ALL SHADES 5K is sponsored by the nonprofit charity Striving for Excellence and Equality in Dietetics (SEED). SEED is on a mission to create financial stability for people of color throughout their Dietetic Internship and expand the existence of Dietetics as a career choice for people of color. Proceeds from the race will help to fund the dietetics intern scholarship program at Virginia State University. Runners 7 years of age and older must be registered in order to participate. Bring the entire family out for a morning of exercise and fun for a great cause!

Yorktown Beach Hills Pub Run


A hot and humid night for the Yorktown Beach Hills Pub Run. Ten hills and four miles or a walk or run around Yorktown Beach, followed by drinks and food at the Yorktown Pub. It’s a unique workout and great people! Mondays at 6 (meet at 5:45 beside the Freight Shed).+8

Inaugural Yorktown Beach Hills Run


Despite questionable weather leading up to the inaugural Yorktown Beach Hills Pub Run, there was a nice mix of walkers and runners. Blue skies and a cool breeze made for a welcoming break from the extreme heat and humidity. Two quick notes for future reference: The upper level of the parking garage is closed for repair until 1 October. There was plenty of parking this evening. Secondly check in to FB or the website for cancelations. We will try to decide by 5-5:15 if the weather looks ominous. Hope to see a few more faces in the weeks to come.



Join PTC at the inaugural Yorktown Beach Hills Pub Run on August 16 at 6:00. Meet on the lawn beside the Freight Shed at 5:45 to signup. Athletes of all levels, walkers to jack rabbits, can find a workout. Fitness, shenanigans, food, and drinks! Hope to see you there! We will meet at the Yorktown Pub following the run.

Tidewater Striders Scholarship 5K


Fellow PTC Runners & Volunteers, next Tuesday, 27 July, is the Tidewater Striders Scholarship 5K. We have a great relationship with the Striders, including our Hampton Roads Super Grand Prix competition and our PTC-TS-CRR competitions. In an effort to support each club’s Scholarship races please consider registering for the TS Scholarship 5K. I believe through this reciprocal support we’ll see more Tidewater Striders members at our next PTC Joe & Sue Moore Memorial Scholarship 5K. I’m registered for the TS race and hope to see some of you there!

PTC Summer Series


With Memorial Day weekend behind us we now look forward to the PTC Summer Series races.

The series begins on the evening of Tuesday, 15 June, with the Trailzilla Fast 5K, followed two weeks later on the evening of Tuesday, 29 June, with the Trailzilla Feel Good 4-Miler, and then, on Saturday morning, 10 July, the Trailzilla Joe-zilla 5-Miler. All 3 races will be held at Sandy Bottom Nature Park in Hampton.

On the evening of Tuesday, 3 August, we’ll host the Tom Ray Memorial Predict Your Time 5-Miler (no GPS, watched, music… nothing that can be used to measure distance, pace, or tempo). This one is held at the Newport News Park Bikeway… the fasted doesn’t necessarily win…

Next we’ll go to Williamsburg on the evening of Tuesday, 10 August, for the Lake Matoaka 4.3-Mile Trail Challenge… its a great race for a PR (if you’ve never run a 4.3-mile race).

Finally we’ll wrap up our Summer Series on the evening of Tuesday, 17 August, with the Swamp Bridge 5K at Picnic Area #3 at Newport News Park.

We hope to see all of you at these fun races!
