The Cheat River Festival 5k is a scenic, relatively flat course that cruises alongside the Cheat River and across country roads.
This is the 9th annual Cheat River Festival 5k, and draws over a hundred runners and walkers. The terrain is easy. Ceramic medallions are given to winners in age and gender categories, and feature iron oxide pigment which is derived from the pollutants that settle out in acid mine drainage. Friends of the Cheat hosts this event, and uses proceeds to support acid mine drainage treatment and recreational opportunities in the watershed.
