The 6th annual "That Dam Race" 5K walk/run will be held in Sutton, West Virginia Saturday at the Sutton Dam beginning at 8:00 a.m. Registration starts at 7:00 a.m.

The course begins under the backdrop of the magnificent Sutton Dam at the Downstream Recreation Area. Participants then have a strenuous climb up hill to and then across the top of the dam. The course takes runners on a trip through the woods and down to the Elk River.

Participants then hit the brick paved streets of historic downtown Sutton past many beautiful, historic buildings. The finish line is nearly in sight as participants head back up river with the dam in the distance. The race ends back at the Downstream Recreation Area where it began.

Come and run or walk one of the toughest and most unique courses in the region.

The proceeds of this year's Dam Race will go to Braxton area Back Pack programs. Which helps to feed children in need during the weekends when they won't be able to eat at school.
