Check out the “On Your Mark” Newsletter!


Fellow Runners & PTC Members,

I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend and are enjoying Virginia’s “Phase 1” opening of many shops, restaurants, and other venues, even if in many cases it is outdoor “social distanced” seating only. As we head into June, please check out the PTC “On Your Mark” newsletter on this website (pulldown menu at top right of the home page) to see our June race schedule, which includes the “Run for the Stage VIRTUAL 5K” and the “Trailzilla Feel Good VIRTUAL 5K”, which must be competed/submitted by 30 May and 30 June, respectively. We are working with Sandy Bottom Nature Park to mark a 5K course for the Trailzilla, and ask that, if you decide to run your 5K there, you adhere to the most current group size and social distancing guidance from the state of Virginia.

We are still planning to hold the “Trailzilla Joe-Zilla 5-Miler” and PTC Annual Picnic on 11 July, but will post any updates as they occur.

For all of our eligible 2020 graduating high school students (or parents of eligible students), check out the website for guidance for applying for a PTC Scholarship… the 15 June (postmarked by) deadline for applications is fast approaching!

I look forward to seeing you at the races… or at least on the running trails!
