Special $85 marathon rate and $75 half marathon rate offered through March 31

Sign up now for the 38th running of the Anthem Richmond Marathon on November 14, 2015 for the special low rate of $85 for the marathon and $75 for the half marathon through March 31, 2015. And, as always, we DO NOT charge extra fees to sign up online!

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 – even an online registration system that doesn’t hit you with extra fees to sign up! 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!”
