RRRC has partnered with the Governor's Office to offer this new September race. Participation in the 5K is capped at 500 registered runners and walkers.
All profits from this race will be donated to the following nonprofit organizations: FeedMore to support the weekend BackPack program; Keep Virginia Beautiful; and the Friends of the James River Park.

Saturday, July 28 - At today's Pony Pasture 5K, presented by Edward Jones, the Richmond Road Runners Club announced the recipients of RRRC College Scholarships for 2018: Noah Campbell, Jack Ikenberry, and Ryan McCracken. Noah graduated from Patrick Henry High School and will be attending the University of Richmond; Jack graduated from Lee Davis High School and will be attending George Mason University; and Ryan graduated from Douglas Freeman High School and will be attending the College of William & Mary. We had a very competitive pool of applicants this year, but after reviewing the applications, the Richmond Road Runners Club scholarship committee saw that these three recipients had set themselves apart from the rest. Each was a very dedicated runner in high school, held leadership positions on their high school teams, actively encouraged their teammates to reach their highest potential, received rave reviews from their coaches, and plan to continue running and supporting a healthy lifestyle in college.
