Join us for the 3rd annual Richmond Road Runners Club’s Poop Loop 4ish Miler. RRRC is partnering with the James River Park System to offer this Saturday night trail run (tentative 7:00 PM start time – a headlamp or other light source will be required). There will only be 200 spots available for this trail race.
The 4.0ish mile course will begin at the entrance to Ancarrow’s Landing and run on the road for a half mile at which point runners will cross over the long forgotten railroad tracks to meld with the Slave Trail Annex. Just before the overpass, runners will take a hard right onto the Slave Trail and head back east. At the large parking lot, you’ll take a diagonal path to begin the trek to the Poop Loop. Taking a left turn onto a section of the Slave Trail Annex, runners will turn right and reach a large grove of trees. At the entrance to the Poop Loop, runners will begin the loop clockwise. Once you exit, you will head back the way you came with the exception of heading straight to run along the river. These trails are beginner-friendly. Children age 6 and older and youth are welcome to run this event.
Why “The Poop Loop”? Technically, the mountain bike trail is Ancarrow’s East, but its location next to the City of Richmond’s sewage treatment plant affectionately earned it the name “The Poop Loop” early on and it stuck.
RRRC Poop Loop 4ish Miler is s a RRRC Club Championship Race for 2020.
Registration will open in July 2020. Until then, all details including date and time are tentative and subject to change.
