Charity
Kids Run RVA

Kids Run RVA is the event charity of the Ashland Half Marathon. The Richmond Road Runners Club and Sports Backers donate all proceeds from the Ashland Half Marathon to this worthwhile cause. The event proceeds make it possible to provide funding support to local kids run clubs and school based running events.

Sports Backers created Kids Run RVA to make running and active living fun and accessible to kids throughout our region. Kids Run RVA provides free training opportunities for youth of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. For schools in low income communities, Kids Run RVA can cover the cost of shoes, team t-shirts, transportation, and event entries so that ALL kids can participate. During the pandemic, Kids Run RVA shifted to offering online fitness classes, providing exercise videos, and hosting virtual fitness challenges. We are eager to get back to in-person programming with the kids this fall!

Donations are critical to the program’s success. Each time a child laces up his or her shoes, you will be giving them the most important gift of all-a path to good health and fitness!
