Start off the New Year with Richmond Road Runners Club's First Day 5K and Kids Fun Run/Walk. The 5K race features a fast and flat course that runs through the Roxshire neighborhood in Midlothian.
To mark the New Year, the race again features special divisions (and awards) for the top finishers wearing an evening gown or tux and awards for the runner with a finish time closest to 20:21.
There is a free Kids Fun Run/Walk (0.5 miles) after the 5K race.
Registration will open in November 2020.
The 5K course is fast and flat through the Roxshire neighborhood. You'll have no problem setting your 5K personal best for 2021.
NOTE: Revised course starting 2020. Still fast and flat but the turnaround is at Chartstone Drive and on the return leg the course leaves Framar briefly for a short detour (Carbonhill Drive-Diamond Hill Drive-Carbonhill Drive). The change provides most of the residents south of Framar with egress via Chartstone Drive to Salisbury and Robious Roads.
One water stop will support runners at about mile 2 and mile 2.5 on the course.
