Randy Birnschein's thoughts:

The Commonwealth Games 5k is the 6th race of a 7 race series that takes place in Lynchburg. This particular race takes place on the campus of Liberty University. There's a big hill right at the beginning, but if you make sure not to put too much into that, the rest of the course is fairly flat. The course is well marked and there were plenty of volunteers to make sure we didn't get off track.

The race is well organized, as are all races in Lynchburg. Race directors have been doing this for quite a few years now and have the support of a great local running store, Riverside Runners. Shirts are nice and soft but are the moisture wicking type. There aren't finisher medals, but the AG medals are awesome. They look like legit medals.

One perk to this race is that if you win an award, you are eligible to participate in the State Games of America. More info is available at

I would certainly recommend this race to anyone in the area. Lynchburg is for runners.
