Charlottesville Ten Miler

7:15AM EDT - 9:45AM EDT
2020 Charlottesville 10 Miler is CANCELLED

In the 44 year history of the Charlottesville Ten Miler, this is the first time the race has been cancelled.   Cancelling the race was absolutely the right decision, and the same time a very emotional decision for all of the volunteers that put countless hours into planning the race for you.

The 2020 Charlottesville Ten Miler will become the 2021 Charlottesville Ten Miler.   

  • International School of Charlottesville and Shelter for Help in Emergency will automatically become the Primary Beneficiaries for the 2021 race. 
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters, Charlottesville Police Foundation, Hope's Legacy Equine Rescue, Madison House and Virginia Discovery Museum will automatically become the Secondary Beneficiaries for the 2021 race. 
  • Participants will have the option to defer their 2020 registration to the 2021 race, transfer their spot to another person or donate their 2020 registration fee.

Why was this decision made?  I use local vendors for supplies as much as possible.  Blue Ridge Graphics have been been printing shirts for the 10 Miler for years and had not yet printed all of the shirts for the 2020 race.  As for the medals, only the ribbon is dated.  The ribbon can easily and rather inexpensively be swapped for a new ribbon.  All other items do not contain dates and can and will be used for the 2021 race.  

How about a virtual race?  All can participate in a virtual race but all may not receive a race shirt.  Just over 400 shirts where printed, shirts and shirt sizes will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.   If asked for, then a 2020 race medal will also be shipped.

What is the date of the 2021 Charlottesville Ten Miler?  GOOD QUESTION!  The date for the 10 Miler is determined by the availability of John Paul Jones Arena and the schedule of UVA sports.  The date for the 2021 Charlottesville Ten Miler will not be known until November/December.

***2020 Charlottesville Ten Miler has been CANCELLED due to COVID19*****

After lengthy and serious discussions with our Race Committee, we have come to the safe and prudent decision, due to the COVID19 virus, to cancel the 2020 Charlottesville 10 Miler on March 28th.  We understand that this decision will be met with some disappointment, as all of you have trained for and were looking forward to participating in this special event.  We too, as a committee, were very much looking forward to hosting each of you this year.  However, the risks far outweigh this. 

We wanted to get this message to you as soon as possible, but details of how we will handle the financial ramifications of cancelling the race will be forthcoming.  We ask for your patience and will let you know as soon as we have details on this.

We thank you for understanding this situation and appreciate your continued support of this community race.

Safe running,

Nicole Brimer
Race Director

Established 1976, the Charlottesville Ten Miler is the area's oldest & most prestigious footrace. This wonderful race traverses some of the most beautiful scenery of Charlottesville, including the dogwood-lined streets of the University of Virginia's Grounds and surrounding neighborhoods, and the brick-paved paths of the Downtown Mall, Court Square and 'the Corner'. This not-for-profit race has raised tens of thousands of dollars for local charities over the past 40 years.
