What: Charlottesville Men’s Four Miler

Being overweight or inactive causes approximately 70 percent of men’s urology problems – including issues such as erectile dysfunction – says William Steers, MD, chair of the University of Virginia Health System’s Department of Urology. The risk for heart disease and stroke is also much higher in men who are overweight or inactive, Steers says. So the main purpose of the Charlottesville Men’s Four Miler, Steers says, “is to get men moving – pure and simple. Even if you walk the race, it’s better than doing nothing.”

Along with raising awareness, proceeds from the race will benefit men’s health initiatives at UVA Health System.

When: Sunday, June 19, 7:30 a.m.

Registration is required. Pre-registration is available through Friday, June 17; runners can also register on race day beginning at 6:45 a.m.

Where: Scott Stadium

The four-mile course winds through UVA Grounds and finishes on the 50-yard line at Scott Stadium.
