The 17th annual Samuel A. Mumley Memorial Classic wraps up another successful year.
The St. Clairsville Sunrise Rotary, along with title sponsor Wheeling Hospital, hosted the event which pays tribute to the late Samuel A. Mumley, longtime Rotarian and true advocate for the youth of the Ohio Valley.
Since the beginning of the event, the proceeds from the Mumley 5k have provide more than 40 scholarships to St. Clairsville High School students in honor of Sam’s wish to “do it for the kids.”
This year, $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to Red Devil graduates Quentin Clark and Anna Davies. Race proceeds also provide support for numerous community focused projects which extends Rotary’s mission of placing “Service above Self.”
This year’s run/walk featured a new course, which starts behind the Belmont County Courthouse, and finishes at the amphitheater near the J.B. Martin Recreation Center.
The Mumley course is well known for taking participants on a unique tour of the St. Clairsville landscape, and is manageable for all fitness levels.
Physicians from the Wheeling Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program will be present to provide expert medical attention to those needing race related care.
The Mumley 5k organizers credit the numerous sponsors for the success and longevity of the event, and extend their sincere appreciation for the efforts they put forth in making this race a “must” for many in the area.
