The Premiere Running Event For Western Virginia

The Appalachian Power Festival Run in Roanoke is one way Appalachian gives back to our communities. The Appalachian Power Festival Run is the premiere running event for western Virginia, and it offers a little something for everyone. Whether you're a hard-core competitor or it's your first running event, the 5K and 10K courses alongside the Roanoke River and through downtown Roanoke highlight some of the best views in the region.

Employees Race to the Finish in Appalachian Power Festival Run

Three Appalachian Power employees raced past hundreds of other runners to earn a place among the top in this year’s Appalachian Power Festival Run in downtown Roanoke May 25.

The 5 and 10k races drew nearly 500 runners of all ages and abilities. At the conclusion of the race, awards were presented to the overall winners as well as top runners in the different age brackets. Appalachian Power employees Patricia Dade, hydro plant support specialist in Roanoke, and Sherry Hoopes, a DDC dispatcher, competed in the 10k race. Dade received third place honors in the Female Master category and Hoopes earned a sixth place finish among women in her age group. Mike Cox, line mechanic, Wytheville, ran in the 5k race and finished second among men in his age group.

David Angell of Blue Ridge, Virginia is a repeat winner in the Power Festival 5k race and was the first to cross the finish line on Saturday with a time of 15:38. Complete race results are posted on the Mountain Junkies website.

For 14 years Appalachian Power has sponsored the annual run which is often held in conjunction with Festival in the Park, a music and arts celebration in downtown Roanoke.
