A lot has changed about the VCU Health Richmond Marathon over the past years, but our dedication to offering you the best race experience possible remains the same.

Each of our scenic courses showcases some of our city’s favorite attributes. With street art and river views, historic architecture and beautiful parks, our race routes treat runners to a unique and unforgettable tour of RVA that ends with our renowned downhill finish and post-race party on the riverfront!

During your race, you’ll also encounter live bands, DJs, spirit groups, and Party Zones that will offer plenty of encouragement and motivation. Need an extra burst of energy? We have you covered with junk food stops and wet wash cloths! Once you cross the finish line, you’ll be greeted by a well-earned celebration on Brown’s Island complete with pizza and a Sierra Nevada Beer on the house!

Take some time to revel in your accomplishment, but don’t let your Richmond experience end there. It’s our birthday, so let’s keep the party going! No matter if you’re a local or from out of town, there’s a whole city to explore!

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