It's our 40th birthday and you're invited to the party!
Disco is dead. Cotton running clothes are a thing of the past (thank goodness). Tube socks are out of style. A lot has changed about the Anthem Richmond Marathon over the past 40 years, but our dedication to offering you the best race experience possible remains the same.
Each of our scenic courses showcases some of our city’s favorite attributes. With street art and river views, historic architecture and beautiful parks, our race routes treat runners to a unique and unforgettable tour of RVA that ends with a grand finale finish line and post-race party on the riverfront!
During your race, you’ll also encounter live bands, DJs, spirit groups, and Party Zones that will offer plenty of encouragement and motivation. Need an extra burst of energy? We have you covered with junk food stops and wet wash cloths! Once you cross the finish line, you’ll be greeted by a well-earned celebration on Brown’s Island complete with pizza and a Sierra Nevada Beer on the house!
Take some time to revel in your accomplishment, but don’t let your Richmond experience end there. It’s our birthday, so let’s keep the party going! No matter if you’re a local or from out of town, there’s a whole city to explore!
Run Richmond once and you, too, will know why we’re “America’s Friendliest Marathon!”
