On March 29, runners from all over Virginia will converge on Hampton Roads for the annual Yorktown Victory Run, organized by members of the Mason School of Business MBA Association. The eight-mile race, a Colonial Roadrunner Grand Prix event, starts at Newport News Park and follows the bikeway through the Yorktown Battlefield to Colonial National Historical Park's Yorktown Victory Monument.
Benefits from the race go to Kidz N' Grief, an organization which offers grief support to children who have lost a loved one and reside in the Hampton Roads area from Williamsburg to Norfolk.
Although the race has been in existence since 1976, this is the third year that it will be organized by Mason MBA students. During that period, participation in the race has more than doubled. The race is sponsored by local businesses and organizations, including the Mason School of Business, but is entirely student-organized. The race provides an excellent opportunity for Mason School MBA students to connect with the local community and put their skills to work for a great cause
Registration is $20 in advance or $25 on race day. Registration includes a racer's packet with goodies for each runner, a long-sleeved t-shirt, and refreshments at the end of the race. Prizes are awarded to the top three in each bracket and top three overall for men and women.
