This 11th annual race is sponsored by the Helvetia Fair Association in conjunction with the 93rd Annual Helvetia Fair.

The 10K Cross Country Run - 9am start: This run is a challenging mix of paved road, dirt road and mountainous trail. It's a 9:00 am start. The course follows a portion of the route the original Swiss settlers used when first coming to the area in October 1869. You will be crossing creeks and enjoying beautiful views. The first 2 miles are flat along the banks of the Buckhannon River. The next 2.5 miles climb 750 feet along Upper Trout Run to a scenic hilltop. The last 1.7 miles quickly descends Zumbach Road back to Helvetia.

The 2-Mile Walk starts immediately behind the 10k and follows the same route to the 2 mile mark.

The Kids Fun Run - 8:45 am start: The event is for ages 10 and under. It's a blast seeing the young runners toe the line like their grownups. You won't want to miss it!
