Wilkes-Barre Racing presents the 4th Annual Valley's Fastest Man

Get ready for the 3rd Annual OneSource Valleys Fastest Man Series series. The first two years of racing have seen incredible athletes that included numerous NCAA All-Americans and even Argentine Olympian (Claudia Camargo-Nero) and USA National Triathlon Team member Kelly Ciravolo.

But this series is for you! The weekend warrior or newbie who wants to see how fast they can fly when the course is short and “just finishing” isn’t the goal. On the rubber track at Misericordia University we seed the runners by expected finishing times, so you get to run in a pack with people of similar pace.

At Giants Despair, the 600 vertical feet climbed in one mile can defeat anyone who starts too fast - can you run a smart race and beat the elites? On the D&L Trail you will test yourself on the unique rail trail surface.

All this for $30.
And the proceeds go to foster care and adoption…come on, you gotta do this!

This year we have a prize purse that includes a $200 bonus for breaking a course record. Misericordia Track Coach Chris Wadas will be recruiting elite athletes from across the northeast.

The series has three one-mile courses:
• Chase Mile at Misericordia, August 24, 2014, 7:00pm,
• The Giants Despair Hill Climb, August 20, 2014, 7:00p,
• D&L Trail Mile at Mountian Top, August 27, 2014, 7:00pm

AWARDS

The final race will be held on Friday, August 27, 2014. Runners will finish under the lights and in front of a large crowd. Awards will be given immediately following the last race.
