[ARCHIVED] Celebrate 20 Years of Greenways on May 13th

Time flies when you’re building greenways! Over 30 miles of greenways and 150 miles of trails have been constructed since the Roanoke Valley Greenway Commission and Pathfinders for Greenways were created in 1997. Help us celebrate our 20th Anniversary with a new Triathlon, the four- mile Gallop and an after party! Join us at River’s Edge Sports Complex in the City of Roanoke on May 13th.

New this year, the 14-mile Greenway Triathlon combines a run on the Roanoke River Greenway, a paddle in the Roanoke River and a bike race up and down Mill Mountain. Test your skills as an individual or as a team!

For the last ten years, the popular Gallop 4 the Greenways race along the Roanoke River has raised funds to build greenways. The bigger and better anniversary event welcomes greenway supporters of all types with a walk and a Kids’ Fun Run in addition to the Gallop and Triathlon. This year, new prizes will be awarded for the largest team to register across all of the events. Early registration is open at

Whether you plan to run, walk, paddle, bike or cheer on the finishers, you must stay for the after party for live music, local beer and local food vendors! Help us toast to a fantastic twenty years so far and much more to come in the next twenty years!
