[ 0 ] April 15, 2018 |

The Saturday before all of the destructive storms the next day it was a beautiful for the annual Rockfish River Elemenraty Earth Day 5K and Fun Run. It was also perfect weather for the annual Piney River Mini Triathlon.

Afton / Piney River

Hard to believe with all of the severe storm destruction that moved through on the second part of the weekend that yesterday was beautiful and sunny. Two very popular annual events were held on Saturday. The Rockfish River Elementary Earth Day 5K and 1 Mile Family Fun Run kicked off the morning in Afton. It was ideal weather and a great time! BRL’s Tommy Stafford ran in the 5K along with all of the others.

Another staple event every spring is the Piney River Mini Triathlon. This has become a local favorite. One we’ve been covering for well over a decade. Our Paul Purpura was out there grabbing shots of all of the participants. Paul says if you want to order a particular photo you can. To access go to and enter “Piney River 2018” in the search bar to go to the gallery. Was a great day and a great event!

Once the results are posted they will be available at the event’s website here.
