HOLIDAY LAKE 50K - THE BEST ULTRA RUN

10 minutes from The Cheyenne

February 15, 2014 

In its 19th year, Holiday Lake 50K  has been and will continue to be a very popular first-timers race as it is most definitely the easiest of the  race series, resulting in more first-time ultra runners than any of our other series races.   There is always a good mixture of veterans and rookies as well as a large group of Liberty University and Virginia Tech runners.  I think it is the best race for a first time ultra runner for a variety of reasons: There is a pretty generous time limit of 8 hours.  In 2012, 327 of 335 starters finished under the 8-hour time limit.   The course has very good footing and each loop has alot of variety with road and single-track trails. The start/finish is at the same place so EVERYTHING is very convenient.  Make The Cheyenne your home away from home where all your family and friends can come to cheer you on!

THE BEST SMALL-TOWN FESTIVAL IN THE WORLD

35th Heart of Virginia Festival

Farmville, VA  18 miles from The Cheyenne

May 3, 2014

Magic shows, face painting, fun art projects, and cotton candy will do the trick if you're three. If eighty-three, you're more apt to enjoy the elegant artwork, one-of-a-kind crafts, exotic fruit drinks, and perhaps the jazz or bluegrass.  There's plenty for all the in-between ages too. Rock, soul, oldies, barbecue, Italian sausage, funnel cakes, antique car show, drama, talent shows, 10-K run.... In the evening the fun moves to the Farmville Airport with more great food and back-to-back bands until dark. Then begins the most spectacular fireworks display you'll ever see - sizzlers, whistlers, twirlers, stars, big bans, colors on colors, dazzling white, just about every variation you can imagine.
