Description

Richmond Road Runners Club dedicates this annual 5K race to the memory of Dr. Peter Still. Peter was a scholar, gentleman, runner, and a friend to many. The proceeds of this race benefit the Richmond Road Runners Club Scholarship Fund. Each year the club has awarded two $2,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors. The scholarship is awarded to individuals who have and will represent the beneficial aspects of running as a healthy lifestyle. The recipients of the 2017 scholarships will be announced at the conclusion of the Pony Pasture 5K.

Help RRRC award at least two $2,500 college scholarships to Richmond-area high school seniors in 2018. Make a donation during the registration process. Not running...you can still make a donation!
