Richmond Earth Day 5K Race Without a Trace

April 23, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm


Join us for the 4th Annual Richmond Earth Day 5K Race Without a Trace showing off the best the city has to offer. Run, walk or stroll down the newly completed Virginia Capital Trail and see the beauty of the James River and its downtown surroundings. Learn easy ways to help the environment along the course and finish at one of the best events of the Spring. That’s right, this race is held in conjunction with Enrichmond’s Earth Day Festival, so when you cross that finish line, you’ll be steps away from the festival’s live music, vendors, food and drink, demos and plenty of educational information and activities. Register today and let us show you what the riverfront is all about!

The race name says it all – our goal is to combine one of the city’s most environmentally friendly races with the most fun possible. Who cares about speed when you have the best Earth Day festival in the state at your finish line, beer on tap, live music, great food, and over one hundred eco-centric vendors cheering you on? So come on out, get some exercise, enjoy some beautiful views and stick around for a fun festival!

Registration is just $30 and includes an official Earth Day 5K Race Without a Trace t-shirt.
