The race is run on open roads monitored by course marshals and with traffic controlled by Henrico County Police. Follow their direction and watch for car/truck traffic.No dogs, no strollers & no children under the age of 8 years old are allowed on the course. Please do not warm up or cool down in the middle of the streets.
Awards & Prizes
THERE IS A CHANGE FOR 2017. There will be no awards presentation after the 1st & 2nd 5K races. Finisher medals (for those qualified to receive them) & all other awards will be presented after the 3rd race on July 24th.
The fastest three male & female runners, the fastest male & female master (40 and older) runners of each 5K race will be recognized on July 24th.
In addition, THERE WILL BE A SERIES COMPETITION. All runners will receive points based on their age-group place in each race. The following age groups will be used: 8 – 15; 15 – 24; 25 – 34; 35 – 44; 45 – 54; and 55+. Age group assignment will be based on the runner’s age on July 10th. Awards will be given on July 24th to the top three male runners and top three female runners (who completed all three races) in each of the six age groups based on highest cumulative point totals. Details of the scoring scheme will be provided before the first race.
RRRC members participating in the Grand Prix competition will continue to receive points for participation and for placing in their 5-year age-group for each 5K race.
