Pony Pasture Virtual 5K


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 $2,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors. The scholarships are awarded to individuals who have and will represent the beneficial aspects of running as a healthy lifestyle. The recipients of the 2021 scholarships will be announced at the conclusion of the Pony Pasture 5K.

RRRC Pony Pasture 5K, in memory of Peter Still, is a RRRC Club Championship Race for 2021.
