This is the main page for the 28th Annual Blacksburg Classic 10 Mile & 5K. This race is put on by the Blacksburg Striders running club. Any news or announcements will be made on this page. The other pages, accessed through the buttons above, lead to detailed information about the race, course descriptions and maps for the two distances that are offered and results (once they become available).
The race courses utilize residential roads and a greenway, the Huckleberry trail. The 5K is run through a neighborhood and enters the trail after two miles. From thereon, all but the final 200 yards is on the trail. The 10 Mile follows the 5K course through the neighborhood, adds on some more residential running, before entering the Huckleberry trail at around 4 miles. The remaining 6 miles (except for the final stint to the finish) is on the Huckleberry Trail. The picture at the top is taken on the 10 Mile course. A 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk is held before the start of the 10 Mile & 5K.
