THANK YOU to all who made RRRC's biggest race of the year happen. The VOLUNTEERS and their cheers and support warmed our hearts from check-in, at all of the turns and climbs, through the water stops, to the bestowing of medals at the finish line. Thank you to all of the officers of the University of Richmond Police and the Richmond City Police Departments. And thank you to race director Michael George and the race management team. Finally, thank you to our sponsors Wegmans and Lucky Road Run Shop.
