Supporting running in the metro Richmond area
NOTE! The Ashland 10K was well organized, and it had great volunteer and community support. I have been running the race on and off for nearly twenty years.
Thank you to the race organization and to the RRRC.
However, I have no idea why the Ashland 10K was changed but IN MY OPINION ---
The Ashland 10K has been destroyed...
Like so many good things that have been a tradition for years has the Ashland 10K fallen victim to the times?
What was once a scenic, fast, interesting 10K is now a hodge-podge of 10K, 5K, and walk.
It is all packed in to a course that requires laps over laps and ends up mixing all the groups together so you are finishing with the 5K and running between the walkers.
IMO it was a bloody disaster!
I do not see it on my calender for next year.
