The 5th annual Pyro’s Push-It-Up Trail Run took place along the Buford Road at the Flat Tops Wilderness Area on Saturday morning.

The race features a distance of 2 miles, which is a family fun run and walk. There are also more competitive and challenging distances of 5 and 8 miles. The race is run each year in honor of former New Castle resident and fighter pilot Captain William “Pyro” DuBois who passed away while defending the United States of America. A record field of 124 participants showed up for this year’s race.

All proceeds from the race go toward scholarships to help train and educate future American fighter pilots.
