No better way to share the day than running with dad or granddad in person or in spirit!

RRRC's Thanks Dad 5K will not happen this year - neither in-person nor as a virtual event. We do encourage you to run on Father's Day in memory of Pete Neal and to think about and honor all of the fathers, grandfathers, and father figures in your life.


The Richmond Road Runners Club's Thanks Dad 5K is designed as a Father’s Day run to highlight the special relationship between fathers and grandfathers and their sons/daughters and grandsons/granddaughters. The Thanks Dad 5K was created in memory of Pete Neal, who served as the Richmond Road Runners Club’s coordinator of volunteers before succumbing to the ravages of multiple myeloma, a form of blood cancer. Pete’s own father was a runner, and Pete passed on that love of athletics to his daughter Rebekah and son Jacob. With Jacob he was determined to run a marathon in each of the 50 states. Despite severe medical issues, they managed to finish 21 marathons in 18 states before Pete's death in August 2014.
