MARTINSBURG – WVU Medicine Berkeley Medical Center, in conjunction with the Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival, will once again host the 2021 annual Bob Baronner Apple Trample 5K in October as a virtual event.
The Apple Trample is held annually as part of the Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival. To meet social distancing recommendations and group size limits, it’s not possible to get together and run this year. But to keep the tradition alive, even in the midst of a pandemic, 5K is happening virtually.
What is a virtual race? It is a race that can be done anywhere, any day, at any time, alone or with others. The apple trampling must be completed within the same four-day period that the Apple Harvest Festival usually takes place. This year is October 14, 15, 16 and 17.
To register, go to https://appletrample.com/. Then choose one of the four days to run or walk 5 km (3.1 miles) and submit your time. Race participants will receive a t-shirt (optional) by October 14 to wear upon completion of 5K. Instructions on how to submit race times will be given upon registration.
There is no registration fee to participate in the Bob Baronner Virtual Apple Trample 5K 2021. With the optional t-shirt, the fee is $ 15 (plus taxes and fees) with a registration deadline of September 29. This year’s shirt will be a technical, short-sleeved shirt. Online donations are also accepted for the WVU Cancer Institute Cancer Comfort Fund to support local cancer patients.
