Description

Run to the River offers fun and challenging 8K race/walk and a 1-mile fun run/walk to benefit the Neighborhood Resource Center (NRC). Runners will dash and walkers will stride through the historic streets of Richmond's Church Hill and Fulton neighborhoods, along the James River, and over three hills (Powhatan, Potomac and Libby).

Whether you're a serious runner preparing for the Richmond marathon or half marathon in November or a casual walker looking to enjoy a beautiful autumn morning, join us for a fun event that's raising money for a great cause—the Neighborhood Resource Center! After the races and walk/run, enjoy food and Halloween themed children's activities.

The best part is Stone will be donating 10% of their proceeds that day to the Neighborhood Resource Center! So come cheer on your fellow runners and enjoy a cold Richmond brew while you wait.
