Men's Four Miler Race Held in Charlottesville

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of men started Father's Day with a four-mile run at the University of Virginia to fight prostate cancer. The UVA Department of Urology and Charlottesville Track Club hosted the 9th annual Men's Four Miler Sunday morning.

More than 400 runners raced through UVA and crossed the finish line on the 50 yard line of Scott Stadium. UVA football coach Mike London started this year's race.

“The biggest thing is to get up and get moving, get people educated about what's needed to address this health issue but also to get in shape. When you can have an event like this and use a venue like this with the people that are responsible for it, you want to get involved,” he stated.

The race started in 2004 to encourage men to get active and raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer.

This year's four-miler featured father-son and family team competitions.
