Hurray! It is time for the 5th Annual We Run Richmond 5K!!! This year, we plan to host the 5K in person at Lucretia Edwards Shoreline Park, located in Richmond's Marina bay. After a challenging year apart, we hope to bring our community together for a common cause...Richmond youth! Thanks to the success of last year's 5K, we will keep virtual participation as an option. If you can not make it to the event in person for whatever reason you can run/walk where you are and e-submit your results via app (instructions will be provided).
Our annual 5K will take place on August 14th at 10am.
We'll kick off the festivities at 10am both virtually via Instagram Live and in person. Each 5K registrant will receive the official race day T-shirt and finisher’s medal. This is our 5th annual event so we're making the merchandise extra special! You don’t want to miss out!
The goal of this year’s 5k event is to raise $20,000 which will be used to fund our scholarship program and backpack giveaway. The aim is to provide young people from our city with the resources and tools needed to feel confident and prepared in the classroom. We will appoint a committee of Richmond residents and business owners who will be tasked with selecting our scholarship recipients. We will also work with elementary schools throughout Richmond to identify which students would benefit most from the backpack giveaway (i.e students who would otherwise not have a backpack or have an old/damaged backpack.)
The "We Run Richmond 5K" is presented by Moving Forward, a fiscally sponsored project of Urban Tilth.
A T-shirt/medal pick-up day will be held in August(date TBD).
Let's keep Richmond Moving Forward!
