The 12th Annual Haven 8K Run For Home will be hosted on Saturday, March 19th from Charlottesville's Downtown Mall near 1st Street, ending at the Ting Pavilion.
We are also offering virtual 8K Run and 4K walk options where you can run your race on your own.
RACE DAY INFORMATION:
Here are a few things to know for Saturday's race:
1. If you haven't already picked up your race materials at Ragged Mountain this week, you may also pick up on race morning at the Pavilion (east end of the mall) from 6:30-7:30 a.m.
2. On race day, we suggest that you park at the Market Street or Water Street garages.
3. Bathrooms will be available on race day at the Pavilion at the east end of the mall. Please note that the new start is farther down the west end of the mall, near 1st street.
4. We ask that you please wear your race number VISIBLE somewhere on your FRONT, so the mat can read your chip. Thanks!
All participants, whether virtual or in-person, are eligible to receive a special "Haven" gloves. The gloves will be available at the Ragged Mountain shop the week before the race. We should have enough gloves for everyone but we can't guarantee it! So come by Ragged Mountain early in the week if you want to be sure to get a pair of gloves.
All race proceeds benefit THE HAVEN in downtown Charlottesville. THE HAVEN is a safe and welcoming day shelter for people currently experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Serving over 85 people daily, The Haven provides respite for the weary and transformation for the ready. Until there's a place to call home, there's THE HAVEN.
**Any extra help you can provide The Haven is greatly appreciated.** The pandemic has been hard on all of us, but The Haven is still out there every day providing critical services to members of our community. There are several ways to provide additional support:
The Haven 8K, the third race in the RaceFest series, is traditionally thought of as a warm up race for the Charlottesville 10 Miler. As the third event in our 2022 RACEFEST series, we will be keeping track of your individual points you accumulate at each event in the series. 5 points will be awarded each time you complete an event. You may accumulate more points based on your age group finish (3 points for 1st in your age group, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd). Top 3 overall placers will also be awarded points. There are 8 races in the series, starting with the NYD5K. Visit cvilletrackclub.org to sign up.
