    This is a RVA staple that made its debut in 2000. The course is a simple out-&-back with very gradual climbs & decent (total elevation gain of 120 feet, peaks at the half mark). The community typically comes out strong & lines the streets for support; this includes local bands for entertainment. Aid/water stations are on the mile from miles 2 to 5. Yes it can be crowded (registration is capped at 20,000), but the wave start is an attempt to alleviate that on the course. Swag isn’t crazy exciting, finisher medals are middle of the road but Sports Backers does what they can with what they have (not everyone can be NYRR).
    Is this an event I register for as soon as it opens? Yes. Is this an event I try to rope as many people into as I can? Also yes.

    This is a must do race, at least one time, if you live in the Richmond area. The expo is well organized with a decent # of vendors. The course itself is fine-flat with only two main turns early on and then a uturn at the halfway point. There are tons of soectators-Richmonders really turn out for their bigger races. Also plenty of bands along the route. Medal is ok, but cotton t-shirt is kind of lame (year before I ordered and paid more for a quality Brooks tech shirt, but was not about to do it this year. Who chose that awful flourescent color?). Medal was ok although was not a concern of mine. Mostly used this race to prepare for a half marathon the following week. My big problem with this was the crowdnof runners and people who clearly did not get assigned the right corral. This was not the workers fault this goes back to registration. I understood the first year where I did not put a registered time down, but this year I was still placed back behind my actual time. Then as tou start to run into people walking, holding their sides from exhaustion and you are not even a mile in the race. This continues for the rest of the race. I think I ran at least an extra .4 miles dodging walkers. Hard to get up steam for the last mile because the crowd of runners was so tight. Parking can be a problem for some so I would recommend the shuttle if you are coming in from out of town and not stsying at a hotel close to the start line. I work in the area so I was able to park there and walk the few blocks to the start line. Glad that I have had the experience of doing this now twice, but due to the organization of runners by time, the mass of runners, and dodging the walkers I am not certain I will do this again. In fact leaning against it right now. The race has simply gotten too big.
