Wednesday, May 16 -- Over 100 runners joined Governor Ralph Northam this morning for an informal 3-mile group run in downtown Richmond and along the James River. The rain stayed away, but the humidity was high for a 6 AM run. Richmond Road Runners Club and its volunteers supported the group run with volunteers at key turns along the course and at water stop.
The Governor and his staff are sponsoring monthly, morning group runs over the summer.
