BECKLEY - Wearing colorful shoes and neon clothing, hundreds of West Virginians competed Sunday in the Earth Day Race and Festival in Beckley.
31-year-old Jason Pyles of Charleston took home first place prizes in both the 5K and 10k races.
The run came just days after the Boston bombing, but the tragedy was on the minds of all participants.
