Join us for the seventh running of our race on Saturday, June 2, 2018 at 8 a.m. at the UVA Research Park. We're pleased to announce ParadeRest Virginia, a local non-profit organization expressing gratitude to our military, their families, and veterans will be administering the race. We encourage you to visit the ParadeRest Virginia website, www.paraderestva.org to learn more about this organization. We’ve made a name change to more accurately reflect the intent to provide support to all members of the military, veterans, and their families. ParadeRest Virginia will manage the race, the grant process, and the distribution of race proceeds to local organizations in our community that support members of our military and their families.

*Note: The race begins at 8:00 a.m. and due to road closures, all participants must arrive at the UVA Research Park no later than 7:30 a.m.
