And one more time....a BIG, BIG, BIG THANK YOU to all of the volunteers that made another Cul-de-sac 5K and the Cul-de-sac 5K Series a HUGE success! The races could not have happened without your presence, your smiles and your encouragement at the start/finish area and along the course. We especially thank race director Mike Gholson.

THANK YOU to our gold sponsor Lucky Road Run Shop and to our supporters who provided all of that wonderful post-race food and fluids: Silver Diner, Urban Farmhouse and Hanover Vegetable Farm.


We hope to see you all again next year for this always sweaty, but always fun series of races!

Registration for next year's Cul-de-sac 5K Series will open in March 2020.

All profits from the races will benefit the programs of the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation to enhance, promote, and advocate for the continued development of the Trail. Check out VCTF's "What We Do" site for more information.



Volunteer Rewards Program's 2nd quarter recipients

ImageJuly 1, 2019 - CONGRATULATIONS to the 18 volunteers who were selected at random to receive a gift card as a small token of RRRC’s thanks for their volunteer service at Club races during the 2nd quarter of 2019. 

  • Debbie Bader (Water Stop)
  • Brendan Conway (Course Marshal x 2)
  • Marcy George (Registration/Check-In Coordinator x 3)
  • Debbie Goodpasture (Registration/Check-In)
  • Kathy Han (Course Marshal)
  • Ann Hirn (Course Marshal)
  • Martha Hodges (Course Marshal)
  • Pam Hunter (Water Stop & Water Stop Coordinator)
  • John Hurley (Course Marshal)
  • Edward Kelleher (Course Marshal & Photographer x 2)

  • Bird Murray (Water Stop)
  • Eddie Parsley, Jr (General Volunteer)
  • Sam Thorpe (Water Stop)
  • Laura Vasel (Water Stop)
  • Dawn Walker (Registration/Check-In)
To be eligible for the drawing, a volunteer had to sign up to volunteer in advance (at least 24 hours before the start of the main race) via RunSignUp for one or more of the club races (Carytown 10K, Stratford Hills 10K or Thanks Dad 5K). 128 volunteers earned a total of 333 entries in the drawing. Some obviously improved their odds of being selected by having multiple entries, because they: volunteered at more than one race; signed up early to volunteer (by midnight of the fifth day before the race); and/or volunteered for certain positions that earned them extra entries (e.g., course marshal or truck assistant).

Volunteer at one of the six club races during the 3rd quarter (Cul-de-sac 5Ks, Pony Pasture 5K, Patrick Henry Half Marathon, Poop Loop 4ish Miler) to be eligible for the next drawing. Click here for more details about the Volunteer Rewards Program.
