Run through scenic & historic sections of RVA, including along & across the beautiful James River. The marathon course is great for first-timers & features some rolling hills.
Sure it’s half the distance, but it’s just as fun! The Half Marathon takes everything we love about the full, & packs it into 13.1 miles.
Get in on the race day fun with an 8k (4.97 miles) run or walk through downtown Richmond & VCU. You’ll be the first on the course to experience our awesome crowd support & enthusiastic spectators.
Choose which distance you want to complete on November 12 & then complete the other 2 distances virtually! You’ll have the month of November to complete your virtual events. Multiple distances equals more medals, more swag, & more bragging rights!
Kids Run RVA, an initiative of Sports Backers, motivates thousands of kids across our region to run & be active. We are committed to improving the health of our children by encouraging routine physical activity, critical to long-term growth & well-being. We provide free training opportunities for kids of all ages, abilities, & backgrounds & funding to support school-based clubs & events. For schools in low income communities, we can cover the cost of shoes, transportation, & entries to overcome barriers so ALL kids can participate. During COVID, we have offered online fitness classes & videos & hosted virtual fitness challenges.
Donations are critical to our success. Each time a child laces up their shoes, you will be giving them a path to good health & fitness!Donate Kids Run RVA Website
Let’s Go, RVA! Sports Backers mission is to inspire people to live actively. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to producing quality participatory events that motivate residents & visitors to be more active, hosting group exercise programs for both youth & adults, & advocating for safe bike & pedestrian infrastructure.
Although we have had to morph and change our normal programming & events over the past two years, we have not stopped pursing our mission. And we are excited to be back to hosting in-person events/programs & have been met with an equal amount of excitement from the community & participants.
