Can you beat Richmond's finest? 

First responders must undergo physical, tactical and mental training to be effective on the job. It's no easy feat to keep our communities safe.


The Manchester First Responders 5K Bootcamp is a fitness competition that challenges participants to complete a series of exercises at designated stations along a 3.1-mile course. From push-ups and planks to squats and shuffle runs, this race incorporates endurance, strength and speed. Certified fitness trainers will be posted at every station and give the go ahead when you’ve completed an entire circuit.


The race also includes a separate Run/Walk competition for participants who want to complete a traditional run and set a personal record. Families are also allowed to participate with strollers. Whether you decide to run, job or walk, we’ll still be cheering you on.


The race is open to everyone of all fitness levels, including first-time runners, walkers, adaptive athletes, families and work teams. Certified fitness trainers are volunteering their services to oversee and motivate participants.


When disaster strikes, fire fighters are called to respond, often putting their own health and life on the line. The RFD Foundation ensures members of the Richmond Fire Department, including family and friends, have the financial and emotional support in time of need. This includes helping all members of the fire family during catastrophic injury, illness or death while in the line of duty, and providing a support network through counseling, disability help and overall benevolence. The Foundation also provides assistance to the citizens during times of crisis and serves to maintain the well-being of our communities.

Proceeds will benefit the RFD Foundation to support our first responders and community.


The official after-party and awards will be announced at Legend Brewing Company (321 West 7th Street, Richmond, VA 23224)
