The 10K course loops around the campus of the University of Richmond. The course is hilly and challenging. The race course is mostly on streets but there is about 1/2 mile on a trail by the lake. New course records are 32:18 set by Cary Chaffee in 2008 and Casey Smith 36:52 in 2006.

All 10K runners will receive a t-shirt. $75, $50, and $35 gift certificates to the first, second and third place male and female. $50 to the top masters male and female.

Race Timing and Results
The race will be computer timed by Kale Running. Results will be posted after completion of the race.

Online registration is available until November 22 or until the race limit of 1500 is reached.

This is the first year we have ever stayed in town for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I was looking forward to running with my daughter, but just found out registration is closed.  Bummer.
