Got a hankering for a hilly half?

If so, you might be interested in this quick reminder/announcement about a distance race in Stanly County:

Cost of registration for the Run the Valley 1/2 Marathon in Badin on Sept. 19 increases from $35 to $45 on Tuesday. (There'll also be 5K and 10K races.) The half -- limited to 100 runners -- goes from the post office in Badin to the top of Morrow Mountain and back, with about 50 percent of the course winding through Morrow Mountain State Park. Badin is on the far side of Albemarle, a little less than 50 miles from center city Charlotte.

Says Peter Asciutto of Vac & Dash in Albemarle: "It's a beautiful, yet challenging course. Very well-organized race."

This is my favorite half marathon! A group of us from Charlotte have been going to the race for years. Pete does an excellent job with this race and at the end the best of badin festival is going on so you can get all the fried food you want!! Its a PR course - as in Pretty Run :)
