Supporting running in the metro Richmond area
Thanks to all who came and, particularly, to those who brought a food donation.
Here's a link to the Mettle race results:
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 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.
