The Race Before Us and Coach Dan invite you to join us tomorrow – Thanksgiving Day – for our Thanksgiving Day Pipeline Run. This is the 3rd year of this event and it continues to grow. This is a fun 10k walk/run event that starts / ends in the parking lot across from Browns Island. We run along the edge of Browns Island, cross the Pipes that run next to the island, run along the flood wall, cross the 14th Street Bridge, back across the flood wall to the Mayo Ruins, climb the ruins (or you can go around), and continue through the woods to Belle Island, then cross the footbridge back to Tredgar where we start. There are plenty of coaches guiding you along the course so you will not get lost. If you have not done this run before, I encourage you to do so since it is a unique way to see parts of Richmond that most people never see.
Here is more information on this run:
Meet: Parking lot across from Browns Island, on Tredegar Street next to the Civil War Museum.
When: Thanksgiving Day, November 27, at 7:00am
Distance: 5 mile loop or 6 miles (depending on if you decide to run around Belle Island)
Cost: Free, but please consider bringing a non-perishable food item, which will be collected and given to the food pantry at Gayton Baptist for distribution to the needy.
Registration: Not needed – just show up. There are no race bids, t-shirts, or anything fancy for this walk / run. You are simply joining a group of runners/walkers in Richmond to begin your celebration of Thanksgiving….plus this allows us to eat a little more on Thanksgiving day without the guilt!
