Richmond T. Rex Run

ImageSunday, November 11 - And just like that, our inaugural #TRexRVA is a wrap. 64 people checked in and ran in dinosaur costumes on a 4/10-mile loop around the lake. There were T. Rex 40-yard dashes and line dancing to the Cha Cha Slide, YMCA, and Shout. Finally the T. Rex took over the playground area for some fun photography! Thanks to everyone who helped with this event, including our sponsors Good Run Research and B Fitness. Without your support we wouldn't have been able to make this happen. Thanks as well to @henricorecnparks for allowing us to use Dorey Park for the event! We can't wait til next year when we'll up the T. Rex fun, RVA!!! #TRexRVA
