That Dam Race 5K
Sutton, WV - Sutton Dam
July 21, 2012 - 8:00 AM
The course begins under the backdrop of the magnificent Sutton Dam at the Downstream Recreation Area. Participants then have a strenuous climb up the face of the dam and then across the top of the dam. Then the course takes them on a trip through the woods and back down to the Elk River. Then, participants hit the brick paved streets of historic downtown Sutton past many beautiful, majestic buildings. The finish line is nearly in sight as participants head back up river with the dam in the distance. The race ends back at the Downstream Recreation Area where it began. "That Dam Race" is held in conjunction with the Mountain Lakes Festival. Check out the Braxton County Visitorís Bureau web site for other activities in the area!
