Description

Join the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation, the Richmond Road Runners Club, and our presenting sponsors Rocketts Landing and Dominion Energy for the 10-mile or 5K races, runs, or walks on the "Capital 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 Virginia Capital Trail Foundation programs to enhance, promote, and advocate for the continued development of the Trail. Check out VCTF's "What We Do" site for more information.

Race T-Shirt

Here is the race T-Shirt for this year!  It has a Halloween theme since it is Halloween Eve.  We had fun designing the shirt and hope you like it!

*Any registrations made by midnight on Sunday October 10th will have a t-shirt on Race Day. We will order additional shirts based on our projections, and hope to have enough for everyone. However, it is possible that if you register closer to the 30th, there will not be a shirt available on the day of the Run. If this is the case, you will have a shirt shipped to you after the event. Thank you for your understanding!*
