No matter which distance you choose, when you run Richmond, you’ll receive VIP treatment! With thousands of volunteers and spectators encouraging you, and more race perks that you can count, you’ll see why we’ve earned our rep as “America’s Friendliest Marathon” (thanks, Runner’s World)!
Each of our scenic courses showcases some of our city’s favorite attributes. With street art and river views, historic architecture and beautiful parks, our race routes treat runners to a unique and unforgettable tour of RVA that ends with a grand finale finish line and post-race party on the riverfront!
During your race, you’ll also encounter live bands, DJs, spirit groups, and Party Zones that will offer plenty of encouragement and motivation. Need an extra burst of energy? We have you covered with junk food stops and wet wash cloths! Once you cross the finish line, you’ll be greeted by a well-earned celebration on Brown’s Island complete with pizza and a Hardywood Beer on the house!
Take some time to revel in your accomplishment, but don’t let your Richmond experience end there. Keep the party going! No matter if you’re a local or from out of town, there’s a whole city to explore!
