A brand new running event has been designed for local runners this season and will take place in Middlebourne. The "Boggs Pizza and Grill Pizza Dash 5K" will be held at the Tyler County Museum on Dodd St. in Middlebourne on April 6 and will benefit local students.

The events are scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. with kids races and the main 5K will begin at 3 p.m. Concessions, games will be available for everyone's enjoyment. Each participants of the 5K will receive a T-shirt as well as a finisher medal. Also, several awards for different age groups will be presented.
