• Active Life in Prince George County, Virginia

    April 12, 2017
    Today’s aspiring communities are resourceful in finding ways to establish accessible, fun, versatile spaces that attract activity. This past weekend Prince George County Parks and Recreation partnered with the Appomattox Regional Jail, Tri-cities Roadrunners, and Friends of the Lower Appomattox River (FOLAR) to provide the second annual 5K Trail Run at the Appomattox River Regional Park!

    This 5K trail run traces a route along the beautiful Appomattox River and through a pristine park setting. The trail offered over 120 runners and walkers breathtaking scenery.

    Prince George County is among the healthiest communities in Virginia, according to the County Health Rankings compiled by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.  The County ranks 43rd out of 133 communities in Virginia.

    All proceeds from this wonderful event will be split between the Special Olympics of Virginia and Friends of the Lower Appomattox River (FOLAR).
