Cinco de Mayo and Taco Tuesday collide on May 5th this year, and we all need a reason to celebrate, so Sports Backers has created their first-ever virtual Taco Trot 5K to mark the occasion in an active way.
After registering, participants then run or walk a 5K (3.1 miles) on their own (making sure to follow social distancing guidelines) and Sports Backers will send them their shirt in mid-May. Aside from those details, SportsBackers also encourages participants to take a photo and send it to us at [email protected], or tag @sportsbackers on social media. Use #RVATacoTrot.
SportsBackers has also put together a list of local restaurants providing delivery or carryout options for people to enjoy a post-trot taco feast and support local businesses in the process.

Richmond BizSense.com Reporting Naked Onion Permanently Closed
The take-out sandwich spot has been closed since the start of the pandemic.
Richmond BizSense.com has the news of another restaurant feeling the sting of Covid-19.
“We have decided to permanently close. With COVID, and giving birth to our second child in May, we just don’t feel comfortable with the daily risk, nor do we feel it responsible to put our staff at risk,” the Comstocks said in a message to BizSense via Facebook.
The Comstocks said they’re not sure what their next move might be. Both are chefs who had prior experience in the culinary scenes in Las Vegas and Richmond before opening The Naked Onion.
