The Adam and Eve Half Marathon is Charlottesville's first SOCIAL RUN. Whether you are single or in a relationship, you can decide on a RED shirt (if you are in a relationship), a GREEN shirt (if you are single and ready to mingle) or a YELLOW shirt (if it's complicated). As Charlottesville’s first social run, the Adam and Eve Half Marathon and 8K and will be the perfect place to meet new friends, to change your status from “single” to “in a relationship” and to share the love of running in the process.
The Adam and Eve Half Marathon and 8K Celebrates Everyone who Loves to Run! It is much more than run: it's a celebration of existing relationships and a catalyst for new ones. What better way to meet someone who shares your interest than meeting them at a race! Dr. Francesca Conte, Race Director
