WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A total of 130 teams with 12 runners each crossed through Washington Township, Pa., on Friday as part of the two-day American Odyssey Relay run that concluded Saturday in Washington, D.C.
Twenty-six volunteers assisted at the Rouzerville Commons checkpoint. Other groups helped at Old Forge Road and at the new South Mountain, Pa., armory, according to Don Baldwin, who was coordinating the race in the Waynesboro area.
Vendors at Rouzerville Commons sold food like funnel cakes, ice cream and fruit. They were required to donate 8 percent of proceeds to The Wellness Community, a Washington, D.C., cancer support charity the overall race is benefiting.
"All the vendors that were there committed to coming next year," Baldwin said, saying the 2011 race will be held April 29 and 30.
