About This Activity

The Run for the River has the same focus as all of our races: good, friendly, and fun competition - but this one tries to make some cash for the Friends of the Rappahannock (a local river stewardship organization). Thanks to our amazing sponsors (especially VARunner), we offer pizza and drinks post race. All preregistered racers will receive a free T-shirt as well and the top three overall M/F will have the chance to earn some cash!

Competitors will all run or walk 4 miles on our local Canal path and Heritage trail (paved). We use calibrated cycling computers to measure the course. The course will lead you along the river and our canal for most of race (so if you feel that you can look up for a second, take in the view) and will finish where it started - in Olde Mill Park. There is enough parking for approximately 150 cars - if you are local, run or walk on down!
