**2016 Blacksburg Classic Postponed**

According to the weather forecast, Saturday February 13th, 2016 will have a high of 14 degrees and a windchill of 0. It is due to this weather forecast that we have decided to postpone the Blacksburg Classic 10miler and 5k presented by Carilion Clinic until the following Saturday on February 20th, 2016 at 1pm. The free Kids Mile Run will take place at 12:30pm. We feel this decision will lead to a safer, more enjoyable experience for competitors and volunteers. Registration will be extended online and in-person during the extra week leading up to the race. Packet pick-up will be Friday February 19th from 4-8pm at RunAbout Sports, or at the race the following day starting at 10am.

If there are any problems or concerns, please feel free to contact us at runaboutsports@gmail.com or call us at 540-552-9339. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. It is our pleasure to kick off our 2016 RunAbout Race Series presented by Carilion Clinic!
