Please join us for the 8th Annual Point of Honor 5K on Saturday, April 4, 2015 @ 9 AM! Race #1 in the Lynchburg Road Runners Club 2015 Race Series! The Start/Finish line will be on Jefferson Street near 9th Street in historic downtown Lynchburg and the course runs along the James River and the Blackwater Creek and includes two passes in front of the Point of Honor museum/mansion at A & Cabell Streets.
It is my profound honor and privilege to announce that I just wrote out a check in the amount of $8000.00 to the LifeNet Health Foundation as the donation from this year’s race! This is the largest single donation in the history of the Point of Honor 5K! In seven years, that brings the total donations up to $40,000 that this race has generated to be used to further the efforts of organ and tissue donation in Virginia! My thanks goes out to everyone that has played a part in making this happen! Not just this year, but EVERY year! Sponsors, volunteers, athletes….you all are the best and without you there would be no Point of Honor 5K! God willing, I will see you all again on Saturday, April 4, 2015 for the 8th Annual Point of Honor 5K!
