The Richmond Road Runners Club’s Thanks Dad 5K is designed as a Father’s Day run to highlight the special relationship between fathers and grandfathers and their sons/daughters and grandsons/granddaughters. The Thanks Dad 5K was created in memory of Pete Neal, who served as the Richmond Road Runners Club’s coordinator of volunteers before succumbing to the ravages of multiple myeloma, a form of blood cancer. Pete’s own father was a runner, and Pete passed on that love of athletics to his daughter Rebekah and son Jacob. With Jacob he was determined to run a marathon in each of the 50 states. Despite severe medical issues, they managed to finish 21 marathons in 18 states before Pete’s death in August 2014.
