On Sunday local residents ran and walked 5K and 10k races in celebration of Earth Day and spreading the message of "it's your world". Racers were excited to participate and do this for a good cause.

"It's a privilege to be out here with all the people on Earth Day and it's a great time running and getting exercise and having a great time," said runner Jacob Ashcraft.

Prizes were given out to winners and money from the concessions bought will be donated to the WVU Children's Hospital.
