The Carytown 10K is now the Quarantown 10K!
Although we can't run the streets of Carytown #Ctown10k, we want to give you RRRCers the opportunity to race, run or walk your own April 10K in RVA.
- Run/skip/walk your 10K anytime during the month of April.
- Report your time or just that you finished, and we'll mail you a commemorative magnet. #QTown10k
- Most importantly, please share your accomplishment on your favorite social media platform as we all want to celebrate your success!
Remember, we don't care how you complete your 10K, just do it -- on the streets, a road, a trail, or a treadmill. You also have #alltheoptions as to how you can complete this. You can do one 10K, two 5Ks, ten 1Ks, 10K worth of loops around your home or apartment building, or even complete 10K equivalent minutes worth of running in place in your living room. Oh, and if you do the latter...you get extra credit!

SignUp Price: RRRC members $5.00; non-members $10.00
Note for this virtual event only we included the RunSignup processing fee in the pricing.
These are challenging times.
We will do our best to continue to engage and connect runners and walkers in the RVA community. We'll be using email and social media to stay in touch. As needed, we'll put on other low-cost virtual events to help keep us all motivated to stay physically active.
We will work with our race directors to continue the behind-the-scenes planning for upcoming RRRC races so we all can gather on the roads and trails again when that is allowed. Those races may open for sign up later than usual and may be low-frill, but we plan to be ready.
We thank the wise leadership of RRRC over years past. RRRC established and has maintained a healthy financial reserve that will allow this organization to weather these uncertain times.
We encourage you to stay physically active. We're preaching to the choir, but you know that running and other forms of physical activity offer untold benefits to our own and our communities' well-being.
