Register now to Run Richmond!

Haven’t run Richmond yet? What are you waiting for?! The Anthem Richmond Marathon has a scenic course that winds through the city’s most historic and beautiful neighborhoods and runs over and along the James River. We love to show off the river so much that we even moved our finish line and post-race party to the riverfront. We’ve earned our rep as “America’s Friendliest Marathon” (thanks Runner’s World!) because of features like our junk food stops and wet washcloth stations! But the perks don’t end there. As you run, you’ll encounter live bands, DJs, spirit groups and Party Zones that will help push you through to the finish. Then, after the race, you can kick back and relax on Brown’s Island and celebrate with hot pizza and cold BEER.

Run Richmond once and you, too, will know why we’re “America’s Friendliest Marathon!”

So take some time for yourself, your health, and your social life and meet us Sept. 17 at one of our five convenient locations.

This group will meet up at different locations each week such as…the Virginia Capital Trail, The Fan, Brown’s Island and more!
