Tazewell hosted a 5K and 10K race Saturday benefiting the local Young Life group.
In the 5K, finishing first in the men's 25-29 age group was local state Delegate Will Morefield.
“This is the first time I have ever participated in this race, but this is for a good cause,” said Morefield, who finds time to run about five miles every other day. “Young Life is involved in the community here, not only in Tazewell, but all across the county and in Southwest Virginia."
Knocking on doors to get votes must help build endurance for running.
