I have been waiting for a couple of months to announce this so I didn't take away from the official announcement yesterday...  The Run for the Dream Half Marathon and 8K May 21 and 22 2011.  8K on Saturady followed by the Half on Sunday.  Benefiting the Achievable Dream Acadamy and The Wounded Warriors Program.  I'll have it up in the race listings shortly once the link to registration goes live. 

Race Director is the Great Dave McGillivray himself and his team.  Locally, here in Newport News, Zach Wittikamp, owner of The Runners Source Managing Director of Ceres Communication Concepts is Director of Volunteer Services overseeing all the other Volunteer Directors, Hospitality, Water, Medical etc.  I am the Course Director and will be looking for course marshals to suppliment the troops from Ft. Eusits that will be helping in a few months.

Big Names are on board; Busch Gardens, Pierce's Pitt Bar-B-Que, Colonial Williamsburg, The College of William and Mary, Towne Bank, Smithfield Foods and Riverside Health Systems with more to come shortly as the final details are worked out. 

Hope to see you at the race!!!!

I saw that they were going to announce it in the Gazette this past weekend.  Really looking forward to doing this race since it will be in my back yard.

Good to know.  I like half marathons, so I will definitely consider that for next year.

I have been out on most of the course and there are some areas that will be repaired and cleaned up before next May.  I really like it, as it has a good mixture of terrain for everyone.  I can say the finish will be challenging for sure!  W&M campus isn't exactly flat lol
