Proud to announce this new partnership!

Today, the Herald-Dispatch West Virginia 5K Championship announces a new partnership with the Paul Ambrose Trail for Health (PATH). The Herald-Dispatch West Virginia 5K Championship is an annual event that allows runners and walkers to promote fitness as a lifestyle while supporting a cause. The 2015 WV5K Championship is set for June 20, 2015 at Pullman Square in Huntington, WV.

“The PATH is an incredible asset to our running community, and we are happy to say that the funds from the 2015 The Herald-Dispatch WV 5K Championship will go towards creating new paths and maintaining the amazing paths that are already established. We hope that runners and walkers from all over the region come out and take part in the 2015 The Herald-Dispatch WV 5K Championship knowing that their entry fees will go towards making the fitness community stronger,” Pat Riley, WV5K Race Director, said.

Registration for the WV5K will open March 16 on WV5K.com. Pre-registration fees begin at $20 and are available till June 5. Prices increase to $25 on June 5. Registration will also be available day-of the event. “We are excited to be partnering with the WV5K Championship and The Herald-Dispatch. This collaborative effort will provide new opportunities for the PATH project and also promote the PATH to new runners and walkers,” Amanda Payne, Trails Program Manager at the Rahall Transportation Institute, said.

PATH is a growing bicycle and pedestrian trail system providing free, healthy recreational opportunities for the City of Huntington and surrounding areas. PATH is named for Dr. Paul Ambrose, who was a promising young physician whose life ended September 11, 2001 when terrorists crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon. Dr. Ambrose focused his medical career on family health and using preventative medicine to fight obesity, and the trail system is a way to continue his medical legacy and impact the health of Huntington.
