The first Virginia Reggae Run

The first Virginia Reggae Run took place at Sandy Bottom Nature Park and was a grand success! Family and friends of all ages showed up bright and early and ready to run/walk on what turned out to be a "just right" kind of day.
Registration began at seven a.m. everyone who registed recieved a 2011 Virginia Reggae Rub T-shirts and a goodie bag. Goodie bags were filled with healthy snacks, a seven day free gym memberships, CD donations from various Virginia artist such as Ever-G, USB, Jaewar, DJ Phil just to name a few.

The run/walk began at eight a.m. sharp with females ages sixteen plus.
The race started off to the sounds of Nyabingi drumming, lots of cheering, and marathon runner Michele Harden leading the way. Everyone also received a medal of completion upon crossing the finish line.

We were enhanced with knowledge of a proper raw and vegan way of life from Karen Cooper founder & CEO of GuRaw. Zumba instructors Frenchy, Nadia & Lora dazzled us with twist, turns and jumps. There was drumming and dance by Urban Sound Entertainment. An acappella performance from Virginia Reggae Award's favorite artist of the year Ever-G. A Trader Joe recycled bag filled with a load of healty treats raffled off and so much more that you will just have to be there next year to see.

It was a great event with an awesome turn out; irie vibes, smiling faces, and youths everywhere ready for a new start in health.
