Lynchburg, VA - A group of people came out to Riverside Runners in Lynchburg Friday night for a fun-run in preparation for the Virginia Ten Miler.
The run was put on by Areva's SAFE Strides program.
They've been helping runners safely train for the race for the past couple weeks.
They had a special treat for runners at tonight's fun-run too... Olympian Todd Williams was there to talk about the do's and don't's of long-distance running.
"Really talking about the issue of safety and having runners finish the Virginia Ten Miler and not only starting the race safe, but also finishing that race safe, so they can continue on and be healthy, and continue to run the Virginia Ten Miler for years to come,"said Olympian Todd Williams.
The runners who came out tonight also got to run a little bit of the Ten Miler course.
