The ¼ and ½-mile races will not be timed. Only the one mile race will have timing chips. One-mile race results will be posted in the Amazement Square Lobby after the completion of both 1 mile events.
Every participant receives a goodie bag, medal, and t-shirt. The top three finishers in each heat of the 1-mile will receive a special prize the week following the race.
One adult will be able to run with a child in the ¼ and ½-mile races. No adults are allowed in the 1-mile race.
There will be a designated parent drop-off and pick-up area for the races. Parents whose child is participating in the 1/4-mile or 1/2-mile race will be issued a lanyard in the goodie bag and only adults with the lanyard will be allowed to run with their child on the race course.
Baby Joggers/Strollers Policy
Due to the size and density of this event, baby joggers and strollers are prohibited. The inclusion of strollers in races increases the potential for injury to race participants and children.
Personal Music Devices/Headphone Policy
The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, The Genworth Virginia 10 Miler encourages a headphone-free environment during the running of the Genworth Virginia 10 Miler and its associated events.
We believe your race experience and those around you will be greatly enhanced by leaving the headphones at home or in the car. Running headphone-free allows opportunities to develop camaraderie with your fellow runners and to enjoy everything the race has to offer. Plus, volunteers and spectators will be on course cheering you on and providing directions to help get you to the finish line.
Runner safety has always been, and will continue to be, a top priority for our event. Please be mindful of other participants and respect personnel to ensure a safe and enjoyable race for everyone.
Amazing Mile Race Cancellation Policy
The races will continue rain or shine. Only if there is lightening will the races be cancelled and will NOT be rescheduled. All registered participants can still pick up their goodie bags and t-shirts at the scheduled packet pick-up times. Upon cancellation, participants who show their race t-shirt or number at the museum Friday, Sept. 21 through Sunday, Sept. 24 will receive two free admissions to the museum.
