Supporting running in the metro Richmond area
The Virginia Transplant Games were created by Donate Life Virginia to show that donation and transplantation saves lives and that transplant recipients go on to live normal, healthy, productive lives. The games honors those who made all of this possible...the organ, eye, tissue and bone marrow donors and their families. During the games, transplant recipients and living donors compete in Olympic style events.
The Virginia Transplant Games are designed for donors and recipients to compete in multiple events. The Transplant 5K is the one event that is completely open to all runners, walkers and the community and gives us all an opportunity to show our support for such an important cause.
The Race will be on the grounds of the new Clover Hill High School and incorporate a mixture of road and trail in a beautiful autumn setting. It is a great course for runners of all ability levels.
The Transplant 5K will be a fully chip timed event with Commonwealth Timing as the Official Timing Company for the race.
There will be multiple categories in which runners may compete and there will be plenty of supporters along the way.

Join us for a very important race to support a great cause!!!
