More than 300 runners and walkers completed the 2 mile course, which began at the Boys & Girls Club.

The club, with locations at 1011 Madison Street and 150 Linden Avenue, provides a safe, positive, encouraging atmosphere for local youth.

With the assistance of many community volunteers who serve as mentors, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lynchburg serves children and teens ages 6 to 18 with programs after school, on snow days and during summer break.

Race timing was provided by Riverside Runners. You can find complete race results at the website. Visit Riverside Runner at 2480 Rivermont Avenue for all of your running needs.

The 2 Mile Run/Walk was held on downtown streets and the Blackwater Creek Trail, ending with the 12th Street hill leading to the Boys & Girls Club.

The top five male finishers and their chip times were Lawrence Minor, 9:53; Ryan Wheeler, 10:27; Nathan Hottle, 11:04; Jordan Price, 11:19, and Owen Hughes, 11:51.

The top five female finishers and their chip times were Amanda Myers-Ramirez, 15:01; Isabelle Amendola, 15:47; Leah Jennings, 15:50; Susan Anderson, 15:59; and Molly Pratt, 16:00.

Many Boys & Girls Club members were among the runners and walkers, with more than 150 participants ages 19 and under.

On the return run, runners offered one another encouragement as they faced the uphills on the course. Following the awards, participants enjoyed refreshments and fellowship inside the club.

Upcoming runs include the Holiday Lake 50k Trail Run at Holiday Lake in Appomattox and the Liberty Mountain 5K Trail Race, both held on Feb. 15.

Running is a great way to stay active in Lynchburg. The Resolution Run was created to help Boys & Girls Club members, their families and members of the community commit to a more active and healthy lifestyle in the new year.
