We are gearing up for our 7th annual Run for Research event on October 11 and 12, 2014. This year we travel from Boone to Cullowhee (175 miles) along the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway.
This year's running group features 18 participants. They include: Professor Jay Scifers (7th R4R), Preceptor Dr. Randy Provost (2nd R4R), Juniors Bo Hartman (1st R4R), Kelcey Holcomb (1st R4R), Whittney Correll (1st R4R) and Matt Wronsky (2nd R4R), Sophomores Floyd Graber (1st R4R), Cedric Wilkerson (1st R4R), Greylin Cleary (2nd R4R), Dalton Greer (2nd R4R), Jackson Roper (1st R4R), Brooke Donaker (1st R4R), Clark Edwards (2nd R4R), Aaron Krofchik (1st R4R), Luke MIller (2nd R4R) and Elena D'Argenio (2nd R4R). In addition, this year's group of runner features two alumni from the Class of 2012; Ruby Floyd and Jessica Thiry (both 1st R4R) have accepted the challenge to join us!
With eight returning runners and an excellent two months of training, this group is poised to break last year's record time of 27 hours 25 minutes and 49 seconds. Please follow us along the way and provide comments of encouragement as we make our way along the Parkway!
