This RRRC Grand Prix race is run every Thanksgiving morning from the University of Richmond. The race is a perennial favorite and sells out at its limit of 1500 participants. There is a free kids run at 8:30. All children must register to run.

Not running?  Volunteer!! 


The Course
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 Mettle Events. Results will be posted after completion of the race.

Online registration is available until November 16 or until the race limit of 1500 is reached.

The race will reach capacity before race day. No day of race registration.

Travel plans have changed.  Can any volunteers use two "scholarships" for the race?

I just registered myself and Stephen Kelley but our state is showing as AZ... not VA????

Not sure how this happened.  Can someone correct this so there is not a problem with the billing?

I'm not getting into town until late Wed night. Do we have to pick up our packets ourselves, or can a friend or family member pick it up for us?
