Run to the River is a new, challenging 10k hill run presented by Rocketts Landing to benefit the Neighborhood Resource Center (NRC). The race will start from the NRC, located at 1519 Williamsburg Road in Fulton Hill, on Saturday, October 18 at 9:30 a.m. Runners will tackle three hills (Powhatan, Potomac and Libby Hills) and race along Richmond’s historic and scenic riverfront.

A 5K walk through Greater Fulton will take place simultaneously. Celebrate at the finishing line party, which will feature an alternative health fair, healthy food from Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market, and live music in the NRC’s new Garden Café.

Whether you’re a serious runner preparing for the Richmond Marathon, or a casual walker looking to enjoy a beautiful autumn morning, join us for a fun event that’s raising money for a great cause–supporting the NRC!

The NRC is a vibrant educational and cultural center dedicated to fostering personal growth and community change in the Greater Fulton area. The NRC is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization.

There are two ways to register for Run to the River:

For the Course: Runner/Walker pays a flat registration fee of $25 to enter the race.

For the Cause: Runner/Walker pays no entry fee but agrees to do his/her personal best to raise $100 for the Neighborhood Resource Center. Persons who raise more than $100 are eligible for prizes including $100 gift cards from Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market. Last year’s top “fund-runner” raised $561!
