   Here’s an excerpt from the story in the Braxton Citizens’ News:

The Braxton County Visitors’ Bureau is sponsoring a 5K Run/Walk on September 11, appropriately called ‘That Dam Race’ due to the beginning and ending points.

The event is part of the Mountain Lakes Festival which runs September 10-11. Tammy Dickens of the Braxton County Visitors’ and Convention Bureau is overseeing registration for the event. Thomas Nicholson, Army Corps of Engineers Park Ranger, is the race coordinator.

“The 5K race is a positive feature for the 2010 Mountain Lakes festival, as well as Braxton County. Last year, we were pleased to see so many local residents come out and join in this event as well as folks from around the state. We are excited about the start of a new tradition in our area that will showcase the county’s natural beauty and encourage residents and visitors to get moving” said Dickens.

‘That Dam Race’ starts at 9 a.m. below the dam at shelter #2 in the shadow of the towering Sutton Dam.
