What is RVA Streets Alive?
Inspired by open streets projects all over the world, RVA Streets Alive! is about closing streets to cars and opening them to the public — for one day — to create a whole new healthy, sustainable and vibrant city street experience. The event is FREE and open to everyone to do what you wish – run, walk, bike, roller blade, WHATEVER!
When is RVA Streets Alive?
Saturday June 22 from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM
Where is RVA Streets Alive?
Downtown on a loop of streets that include the Manchester Bridge and the 14th Street Bridge. Both Bridges are closed to traffic and the streets between the bridges.
What is the Richmond Road Runners Club (RRRC) doing for RVA Streets Alive?
The RRRC will be running the 2.5 mile loop. Continuously. From start (10:00am) until finish (3:00 pm)
We will have leader for each lap of the run. Some will run fast, some will run slow. It is not a race. It is a fun run to enjoy the day and to say we did it.
Each lap will start every 20-30 minutes from the RRRC tent on the Manchester Bridge, near the south end of the Bridge.
What do we want our member to do? What can you do?
Join us. For one lap, two laps or all the laps. We will have the RRRC Tent set up. And we will have water to help keep you hydrated.
Our idea is to have at least one person running at all times. But the hope is that you will come join us. And some laps may have many, many runners showing off the RRRC and enjoying the day. And to have fun at this new event.
And by running you will be able to see what else is going on at the festival and enjoy those portions after your run.
The Summer Track Series information and schedule is now available.
RRRC either Administers or provides some type of Race Service for all of these races. For some of these, volunteers are needed. Please see our Volunteer Page for Volunteer Registration.
