Richmond 5k

Participating in a 5K or marathon is a great way to get some exercise as you train for and then run or walk in the event. You'll also be able to meet other people as you race and socialize afterward and get to see some beautiful local scenery. Our real estate agents suggest checking out these upcoming fun runs scheduled in Central Virginia this summer and fall:

  1. Give a Dog a Job 5K – Sept. 18, 2021 – Main Line Brewery, 1603 Ownby Ln., Richmond, VA 23220
    The Give a Dog a Job 5K, held near Richmond homes for sale, offers a virtual and in-person option for the 5K. If you participate in person, you'll also be able to enjoy music, prizes, and vendors. Bring your pup along to get some exercise with you as you run, walk, or roll since 100% of race proceeds go to Canine Companions for Independence. This organization trains feeds, and provides veterinary care for highly trained assistance dogs who will be given free to adults, children, and wounded veterans who need them.

  2. Virginia Brewery Running Series – Sept. 18, 2021 – Steambell Beerworks, 1717 Oak Lake Blvd., Midlothian, VA 23112  
    The Virginia Brewery Running Series consists of courses – all around 5K – that start and end at local breweries. In Midlothian, the race is set at Steambell Beerworks, a popular brewery located near Midlothian homes for sale. As a reward for racing, you'll get a free craft brew and a collector's pint glass or seasonal swag item. At least 10% of the proceeds from this race will go to REACHcycles, a local non-profit that provides adapted cycles to children and veterans who need them.

  3. Colonial Relay/70 – Sept. 25, 2021 – Courthouse Park, 7232 Courtland Farm Rd., Hanover, VA 23069
    The Colonial Relay/70 is a one-day relay race designed for teams of 2 to 6 people who split the race's 12 legs. Teams provide support vans for runners to use at drop-off and pick-up points along the way. The race is meant for everyone from serious runners to casual joggers, and the course is run over 70-plus miles through the heart of Virginia, starting near Hanover homes for sale and ending in historic Williamsburg.

  4. Pocahontas Trail Festival – Oct. 23, 2021 – Pocahontas State Park, 10301 State Park Rd., Chesterfield VA 23832  
    Runners have their choice of several distances – marathon (as a single runner or as a relay), half-marathon, and 10K – at the Pocahontas Trail Festival. This race loops through Pocahontas State Park, a picturesque location near Chesterfield homes for sale. Good footing is available most of the way since some new trails have been built.

  5. Healthy Kids Running Series – May 23-June 20, 2021 – Quioccasin Middle School, 9400 Quioccasin Rd., Richmond, VA 23238  
    A fun event specifically for kids! The Healthy Kids Running Series is a 5-week program designed to help kids pre-K through the 8th grade develop healthy exercise habits. The five runs are conducted in Richmond, close to Glen Allen homes for sale. Events include the 50-yard dash, 75-yard dash, quarter-mile, half-mile, and 1-mile run. Kids earn points throughout the races, and those with the most points at their distances will win trophies.
