ASHLAND -- Hundreds of runners crossed the finish line of the Summer Motion 10K on Saturday morning in Ashland, as the Summer Motion festival itself prepared to do the same with one final day of activities set for Sunday at Central Park.
In addition to the physical challenge, festival attendees also took on mentally challenging tasks during the Summer Motion Heart Race and even a gourmet challenge during the Summer Motion Chef Challenge, where Bellefonte Country Club executive chef Jason Oesterreicher and sous chef Billy Roegner took home the top prize.
A passing storm cleared in time for Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. to take to the stage Saturday night.
The festival wraps up Sunday with Sunday in the Park, a motorcycle show, the final day of the Arts and Crafts Show and the Bluegrass Revival.
