The Virginia Capital Trail Foundation is inviting Richmonders to celebrate fall with the Rocketts Landing Cap Trail 10M & 5k presented by Dominion Energy on October 29th. This fully supported race features scenic views along the James River, a measured and marked course, top-finisher prizes, costume contests, music, an event t-shirt, and a celebratory beverage ticket to Stone Brewing.
All distances start/finish at Stone Brewing in Richmond and take place on the paved Virginia Capital Trail (separated from vehicle traffic). The timed event is perfect for runners and walkers of all ages and fitness levels. Additional features include a start/finish line, on-site packet pickup, touchless water stations, and chip-timed bibs. There is also a pre-run costume contest with prizes awarded in the following categories: best adult, children, and family/group costume.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the Richmond Road Runners Club to host our fourth run/walk event on the Capital Trail,” shares Cat Anthony, Executive Director of the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation. “This is one of our favorite events because it showcases the versatility of the Capital Trail. Each year, we meet participants who are visiting the Capital Trail for the first time.”
Early bird pricing is $37 for the 10-mile and $32 for the 5k before September 29. Registration includes a Halloween event t-shirt, top finisher awards, and a celebratory beverage ticket at Stone Brewing Tap Room in Richmond. There is a race discount of $15 for participants under 20 and a $5 savings if you refer three or more friends. All profits from the races support the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation’s work to enhance, promote, and advocate for the continued development of the Capital Trail and other trails throughout the Commonwealth.
