Join the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation, the Richmond Road Runners Club, and our presenting sponsors East 51 at Rocketts and Dominion Energy for some virtual 10-mile or 5K races, runs or walks on the "Cap Trail." A 52-mile dedicated multi-use trail connecting Richmond and Williamsburg along the beautiful and historic Route 5 corridor, our Virginia Capital Trail is a gem of a resource for RVA runners, walkers, and cyclists. In 2019 (the races' first year), there were 500 finishers of the two races.
All profits from the races benefit the programs of the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation to enhance, promote, and advocate for the continued development of the Trail. Check out VCTF's "What We Do" site for more information.
We strongly encourage (but don't require) you to run your 10-miler and/or 5K on the Virginia Capital Trail. Take advantage of this virtual event to find and explore a new-to-you section of the trail for your run. Check out the Virginia Capital Trail Map for options.
