A Great Start to 2019


Tuesday, January 1 -  Runners, walkers, volunteers and spectators enjoyed surprisingly and pleasantly balmy weather for January 1. We had 583 finishers of the RRRC First Day 5K, presented by Davenport & Company LLC...a 15% increase over 2017. And we had lots of very youthful runners participate in the Kids Run.

ImageWe got some nice coverage in the Richmond Times Dispatch...thanks in part to Virginia's Governor Ralph Northam, who ran the race again this year.
