Club Sponsored Races

The Nittany Valley Running Club sponsors many of the local races helping with volunteers, timing, race directing, and sometimes financially with grants.

Jeremy Herbstritt Memorial 5K

Jeremy Herbstritt was a local runner, a Bellefonte High School and Penn State grad, who died in the Virginia Tech shootings on April 16, 2007. In May 2007, the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Penn State and the Nittany Valley Running Club put on a 5K race/walk to honor Jeremy's memory. The event, organized on short notice, was very successful, attracting over 400 participants. The race has become a regular event. Jeremy's father, Mike Herbstritt, said he hopes to take money donated to his family and one day build a track at Bellefonte Area High School, so the school district has its own facility. "That's one of our goals, a track that we can dedicate to Jeremy, so we can all run it in Jeremy's footsteps."
