The 2021 Run Richmond Half Marathon & 5K has been postponed to Saturday, October 1, 2022.

We plan to reopen registration in a few weeks for the 2022 event.  We are in the process of communicating with our 2021 registrants providing them with options for their registration.  The postponement is primarily due to COVID-19 and the City of Richmond's ability to staff our event for traffic safety.  More details and open 2022 registration coming soon.
